BROOKLYN - South Brooklyn residents may have a major commuting headache start on Monday morning.

Nine stops along the Manhattan-bound N line are set to close for renovations.

The renovations will include platform and overpass improvements, new stairways, enhanced safety features and upgraded communication systems.

The MTA suggests taking a southbound train to Bay Parkway or Stillwell Avenue and taking the express N train north.

Renovations are expected to last 14 months.

The MTA says when it it finishes with the northbound renovations, it will start working on the Brooklyn-bound stops.
