BROOKLYN - The M train is reopening for service at Central and Myrtle avenues after five months and $11 million in renovations.

About 3,500 daily riders rely on the M train stop for service into Manhattan and Queens, as well as local Brooklyn stops. Those who work near Myrtle Avenue say they expect the reopening to bring much needed life to their businesses.

The repairs are part of a larger reconstruction plan following Superstorm Sandy that the MTA says it has been working on nonstop.
