Straphangers in store for headache with repairs and hampered service on No. 1 line


Harry

Recommended Posts

The IRT No. (1) line is going to be straphangers' No. 1 pain.

 

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is planning a host of station closures and service interruptions along the line over the next two years as it undertakes a large rehabilitation project.

 

Work will center on Inwood's Dyckman St. station, where the MTA will restore the station wall, replace stairs, repair the ceiling and rebuild the platform.

 

The tracks through the entire station will also be replaced.

 

The station will be closed for 10 months on the northbound side from September through June 2011.

Oh yeah the (1) line in the Fall is going to be Classic on the Weekends...

 

They really need to repalce that track @ Dyckman Street as well it mean that train rocks coming into that station.

 

As i said before those poor souls from V/C to 207th Street on the (A) Line Shuttle Buses are going to be happy.

 

Then waiting for that elevator @ 168th Street oh joy...

Dyckman has a great view, but the station really needed a overhaul like at least 5 years ago. Also hopefully work is done at both 168th and 181 as well to make sure the incident that occurred at 181 a few years back does not happen again.

 

Also hopefully the (MTA) does the right thing and makes Dyckman on the (1) line ADA accessible.

At the same time, the MTA will be working in the Bronx on the canopies and platforms of the stations at 207th, 215th, 225th, 238th and 242nd Sts. It also plans to repair the stairs at the 207th and 225th St. stations.

That's excellent news. That's maximizing the amount of repair work they can do while they are already inconvencing passengers by working on Dyckman. All of the elevated stations up there (aside from 231st St.) can use some work anyway.

According to the subway map, Marble Hill/225th St. is not in the Bronx. The news paper missed that. Funny how that's still Manhattan. I think that waterway up there is man-made, though so, it makes sense.

The MTA does not plan to make the 1 train Dyckman station accessible at this point. I wrote about the situation here.

What map are you looking at? Both the system map and line map has Marble Hill-225th Street in the Bronx. Politically it's part of New York County but it's geographically part of The Bronx.

That's strange, as the station appears to be near the surface (this is where the line comes out from underground), so you would think it would be easy to make accessible.

Its only two flights up at Dyckman, but we all know TA is strange. Parkchester still won't have an elevator, and its in the top 4 (stats arent in front of me and I'm lazy) in ridership in the county, rivaling some Manhattan stations that have them. What intrigues me is that 161 and 149-3av have elevators, and Park and 149-GC does not (plenty of space at Park for them, but difficult to do at 149).
