Pennsylvania Ave. station reopens after repairs

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has announced that the Pennsylvania Avenue No. 3 train station has reopened following months of repairs.



As News 12 reported, the East New York subway station was shut down last October after a box truck crashed into it.



The renovated station opened at noon Friday. It has brand-new windscreens, platform lighting, benches, trash cans, guard rails and columns, in addition to a new mezzanine floor and a fresh coat of paint.



The station was originally slated to reopened on Monday, but riders were forced to continue using shuttles or other means of transportation.



While service has resumed, the MTA says there is more work to be done, including installing new windows and a new facade in the mezzanine.
