2 No. 3 line stations on New Lots Ave. close for repairs

Two No. 3 line subway stations along New Lots Avenue closed Monday and will not reopen for several months.



The Sutter Avenue-Rutland Road and Junius Street stations temporarily closed at 5 a.m. as crews work to wrap up planned repairs on seven elevated stations along the line in Brownsville and East New York.



Crews will spend the next five months fixing up the stations as part of an $88 million capital project that the city says will help bring all of the stations along the line to a state of good repair.



Renovations include new lighting, redone platforms, safety and communication features and other repairs to station infrastructure.



Until spring, trains will skip the Sutter Avenue-Rutland Road and Junius Street stations in both directions.



The MTA is providing free shuttle buses at the two impacted stations.
