    Woodhaven Boulevard would be the easiest to renovate, since the IND built the station to probably be converted into an express station later on originally for the proposed Rockaway Beach Branch.

    Maybe a cross-platform walkway over the center tracks, similar to the 42nd Street Shuttle.

    Question: What is the MTA doing with the middle platform, according to this video by L Train Productions TM?

    Probably the plan to extend the to Springfield Boulevard via Hillside Avenue is also feasible

    I didn't think the HHE extension through so I appreciate the feedback. An extension via Jewel and 73rd is a great alternative to building a line to east Queens but that would also be difficult as that means that 73rd Avenue and Jewel Avenue have to be widened and the same with the sidewalk to fit entrances and tunnels.

    Has anyone mentioned a Horace Harding Expressway Line? If not, here's my idea for a Horace Harding Expressway Line to extend subway service through central and east Queens. This is pure fiction and obviously won't be built or planned by the MTA. In this plan, service would be brought back to run its original route from 2nd Avenue until Woodhaven Boulevard, the line will connect to a 3-track subway tunnel running under the Horace Harding Expressway to Little Neck Parkway. The will still be part of Sixth Avenue Line and the QBL, and future extentions and transfers will be referenced. Here are the stops: 2nd Avenue - Broadway-Lafayette Street - , transfer to West 4th Street-Washington Square - , transfer to 14th Street - , transfer to 23rd Street - 34th Street-Herald Square - , transfer to 42nd Street-Bryant Park - , transfer to [42nd] 47th-50th Streets-Rockefeller Center - Fifth Avenue-53rd Street - Lexington Avenue-53rd Street - , transfer to Court Square-23rd Street - , transfer to Queens Plaza - , transfer to 36th Street - Steinway Street - 46th Street - Northern Boulevard - 65th Street - Jackson Heights Roosevelt Avenue - , transfer to Elmhurst Avenue - Grand Avenue-Newtown - (R) Woodhaven Boulevard [converted to express station] - (E)(F)(M)(R) ====[2 tracks to be built after the stop and spur under the Horace Harding Expressway from the QBL]==== 108th Street [local] College Point Boulevard-Van Wyck Expressway [local] Main Street [express station; two island platforms with center track for rush hour peak express]\ Kissena Boulevard [express] 164th Street [local] Utopia Parkway [express] 188th Street [local] Francis Lewis Boulevard [local] Oceania Street [local] Springfield Boulevard [express] East Hampton Boulevard-Cross Island Parkway [local] Douglaston Parkway [local] Marathon Parkway [local] Little Neck Parkway [three-track terminal] Streets are based on convenient street intersections on the Horace Harding Expressway service road, express/local stations are determined by amount of available bus transfers. Also, this is built assuming budget can afford all this construction and that it can push toward completion quickly.
  7. Yep, Hillside Avenue got widened.

    Just regular station rehabilitation, the MTA is now accepting the "close the whole station" method because renovation will be faster, such as 111th Street on the .

    Yeah, we should do that.

    What's the estimated cost of renaming a station?

    What about Richmond Valley on the Staten Island Railway? It's also in ESI renovation.

    There's also an abandoned entrance to the 167th Street underpass at Grand Concourse on the trains.
