New York City Transit's Far Rockaway-bound platforms at Beach 60th Street and Beach 36th Street are next in line to be closed as part of ongoing rehabilitations of stations in the Rockaways. These platforms will be closed for approximately four months beginning at 5 a.m. on Monday, February 22.
The work includes
installing new canopies over the stairs and platforms, repairing the platforms,
columns, stairs and tracks, refurbishing the mezzanine and platform floors,
replacing the stations’ lighting and platform edges, and installing a new,
high-quality public address system.
