After taking the summer off, the Metropolitan Transit Authority has announced that the rehabilitation on Rockaway’s subway stations began again this past

Tuesday.

According to an MTA press release, “the work includes installing new canopies over the stairs and platforms; repairing the platforms, columns, stairs and tracks; redesigning area around station booth[s] for easier access to trains; replacing the mezzanine and platform floors; replacing the stations’ lighting and platform edges; and installing a new, high-quality public address system.”

Beginning September 7, the Manhattan bound A platforms at Beach 25, Beach 44 and Beach 67 Streets are to be closed until the fall of 2011. If you normally catch the Manhattan train at one of these stations, take the Far Rockaway bound train one stop back and switch over to the Manhattan-bound side.

At the moment, the eroded staircase on the Broad Channel-bound side of Beach 90 Street is the only way to get into the station while repairs are being done to the Rockaway Park-bound side.
