Repairs will shut seven N-train stations for nearly two years

Repairs will shut seven N-train stations for nearly two years • Brooklyn Daily

Bensonhursters and Dyker Heights residents better start planning their 2016 commutes now.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority will close seven of nine subway stations along the N-train line between the Coney Island terminus and Eighth Avenue on the Manhattan-bound side for 14 months starting in January, and then for another 14 months on the Coney Island-bound side in 2017.
The imminent closures are a necessary evil to repair the crumbling stations and replace aging tracks, a local leader said.
