MTA Repair Questions

" I have a few questions about the construction work being done on the subway stations here on the peninsula. If the stations are closed 24/7, why isn't the work being done 24/7? Why are there no elevators being installed in any station except Mott Avenue? When the work on Beach 67 Street is done will the staircase at Beach 69 Street be reopened? Will they add a staircase to the Manhattan bound side and will these staircases be exits only or will they have fully functional turnstiles? If not, are they still going to waste money refurbishing the existing staircase, or will they do the sensible thing and remove it completely? What about Beach 105 Street? It is the least used station in the entire system and it is only a matter of time before the MTA closes the station permanently. Why not close it now and redistribute the money being wasted on it to add elevators to some of the other stations?
