As I recall, this program was criticized for both cost, and lack of accessibility upgrades...
NEW YORK - The 72nd Street subway station along the B and C lines has officially shut down for repairs.

It's all part of the MTA's controversial program to renovate stations.

During the work, the station will get new entrances, digital display boards, lighting and be waterproofed.

It's not expected to reopen until October.
The 110th Street stop at Central Park West closed for renovations last month and the 163rd Street-Amsterdam Avenue stop closed in March.

More closures, including these with ADA Compliance: https://www.timesledger.com/stories/201 ... _04_q.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
The Astoria Boulevard station will have four elevators installed with two rising from the street to the elevated mezzanine and two more taking riders from the mezzanine up to the platforms.

The station will be closed in February 2019 for nine months as reconstruction brings improvements to the station along with the elevators.

This station overhaul will begin as similar work will be completed in June 30 on the 30th and 36th avenue stations on the N/W lines for infrastructure repairs which closed the two in October.

But while elected officials praised the coming of ADA-accessibility at the Astoria station, they voiced opposition to the closure of the 30th and 36th avenue stations.
