GRAVESEND -

Two subway stations have officially reopened after being closed for a year's worth of construction.

The Avenue X and Avenue U stations in Gravesend have reopened, officials say. Commuters can now catch the Coney Island-bound F train from those stations again.  

The city closed a total of nine subway stations in Brooklyn for the $140 million renewal plan.

Repairs included new staircases and lighting.
