The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) announced crews completed aesthetic and functional renovations of the Canarsie-Rockaway Parkway station in Canarsie, Brooklyn.
This work is part of New York City Transit (NYCT)’s Re-NEW-Vation Program, which utilizes planned weekend service outages to perform upgrades, repairs, and enhanced cleaning in stations within a 55-hour window, providing customers with overhauled stations when service interruptions end on Mondays.
While planned track work took place over the last weekend, workers made extensive repairs to leaky and damaged roofs to keep customers dry during inclement weather.
A new rubbing board was installed, protecting 1,400 ft of the platform from damage caused by trains brushing against it.
Additional renovation work included new LED lighting installations to brighten dark areas, repairs to concrete tripping hazards on platforms, platform benches rehabilitated, and out-of-date signage was removed.
The station also received a fresh coat of paint after transit workers scraped peeling paint and primed surfaces. Employee facilities also received enhancements, cleaning, and repair work.
