Newly renovated 'B,' 'Q' subway stations reopen
After more than two years of construction, the "B" and "Q" subway stations have reopened in Brooklyn.
The MTA says the two stations, located at Avenue U and Neck Road, have undergone nearly $58 million in renovations. The changes include replacing and widening platforms, adding new windscreens and canopies and upgrading the lighting and public address systems.
Now that the stations are back on track, the "B3K" bus to Kings Highway has been discontinued, but the "B3" bus service will continue running. Commuters on Manhattan-bound trains will still bypass Avenues M and H until fall 2011.
