MTA will close 30 Subway stations for up to 12 months for major renovations in 2018

The MTA just released this press release that details New York Governor Cuomo's plan to revitalize and repair the NYC Subway system. The plan includes a "rapid approach" to station redevelopment by closing entire stations for 6-12 months between 2018 and 2020. A listing of the proposed closed stations is below.

Work on the majority of these 30 stations will be completed by 2018, and all will be finished by 2020, with timeframe for redevelopments from start to finish being reduced by more than 50 percent. On average, station redevelopments are expected to take between six and 12 months. Comparatively, under the previous piecemeal approach, station redevelopments relying on night and weekend closures could take two to three years or more to be completed.
