Parkchester '6' line station to be partially closed for next 6 months for repairs


Shortline Bus

Recommended Posts

Straphangers on the borough's IRT No. (6) train are bracing for partial closures at the busy Parkchester station, starting next month.

 

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority will close the northbound side of the station during nonpeak hours April 10 for repairs and renovations, scheduled to take three months.

 

The MTA will follow that in July with the closure of the southbound side during nonpeak hours for three months, as well.

 

To help riders cope with the closures, the agency will offer free transfers on a local bus route to the next closest station.

This is one of the busiest stations in the Bronx. I have an aunt who lives near this station. This sucks.

 

 

Correct me if i wrong guys but Mr. Wilson the good news is by end of this year, the Parkchester station will look much better and most important i think its getting to be ada accessible as well.

That station definitely needs a makeover, I'm glad it's being done this year, never mind the inconveniences it will cause. It'll be good in the long run for the (6)<6> riders.

Either the (6) Local will terminate at St. Lawrence Av, run it to Pelham Bay Park, or suspend *<6> Express trains in both directions.

 

*i doubt that.

 

Well the plan calls for the work to be done during non-rush hours so during rush hours only the <6> will run then; during midday hours the <6> would most likely be suspended.

You can't install a elevator in three months.

That's a great thing. That station is big and it should be equipped with ADA elevators. I just hope that <6> service isn't affected too much by this the way that the (5) is with that E 180th St project.

It shouldnt take 3months to build an elevator. It just take a few weeks.

 

So northbound (6) local trains will terminate at St. Lawrence Avenue during rush hours?

 

Either the (6) Local will terminate at St. Lawrence Av, run it to Pelham Bay Park, or suspend *<6> Express trains in both directions.

 

*i doubt that.

 

Why end it there if it can still use Parkchester and relay, there is a junction north of Pkchester/westchester ave. Tho may cause some small delays on Pelham Exp

MTA doesn't mention the Pelham Bay (6) trains that will be running between 7pm and 9pm along with the <6>. Those trains skipping E 177 St Parkchester (even though the MTA Trip Planner indicates that they stops there) will cut down on the (6) and <6> delays waiting to see which leaves 177 first.

The (6) during that time will still be the same but bypass Parkchester while the <6> will stop at Parkchester. The Uptown platform will be closed 24 Hours 7 days a week. Also let me just make it clear between 10:30AM and 3:30PM there will be no Express service it will operate as follows (6) Pelham Bay Park to Brooklyn Bridge and 138 Street 3 AVE to Brooklyn Bridge.

Thanks for the 411. So will the (6) make the announcement saying "This is a St. Lawrence Aveneu-bound (6) local train" or it'll be done manually?

Its a good thing you asked that and looked closer at the schedule and now have to make a currection. There will be No Manhattan Bound Express service starts at 09:30AM the last Express is the 9:16 Pelham then every thing else will run local with the Parkchester service until the 3rd Ave service kicks in which will be at 10:30AM. Some of the Parkchester Lay Up will run Express from 3rd Ave to Hunt Pt then Discharge and run light to Westchester Yard.

Downtown <6> run between 6AM and 9:30AM

Downtown (6) Pelham and Parkchester to Brooklyn Bridge 9:30AM to 10:30AM

10:30AM to 3:00PM (6) operate between Pelham Bay to Brooklyn Bridge / 3 AV-138 TO Brooklyn Bridge

Uptown Between 9:30AM and 10AM some Uptown trains will be Hunts Point Bound Via Express 3 Av-138 to Hunts Point.

3PM service goes to Normal exept Parkchester service ends at St Lawrance.

Rush Hours Parchester Service is Normal Downtown but Uptown trains will discharge at St Lawrance Ave.

Why not have uptown express end at 177 instead of Hunts Point? It would make sense to discharge passengers on M track downtown side 9:30am-10:30am instead of having all trains bypass the station, unless MTA thinks people will be confused by this 1 hour pattern. Basically anything using M track uptown should stop, even if it is reverse peak express layups.
