All the signage at Nostrand Avenue has been replaced with white on black subway signs. The eastbound staircase also mentions destinations of JFK and Jamaica Center in addition to Points East.

The Viaduct needs to be replaced along with Nostrand Av Station. Septa did the Market-Frankfort line , LIRR can do the Atlantic Branch.

They did replace the viaduct, they trucked in new track panels and steel structures. They're wrapping it up now.

It still looks like a 3rd world Viaduct needs to be completely replaced...

For the record, that "first world" crap only used to refer to the United States and its allies.

 

Second world was communist countries, third was applied to countries that were neutral or non-allied, and first was the U.S. and its allies.

 

When I rode that viaduct on the LIRR in March, it looked brand new.

The viaduct that the Nostrand Ave station is on is still the old structure; it has not been replaced.

 

As far as the signage, it's interesting to note that the signs mention "Jamaica Ctr".

There is one part left to the viaduct project, which includes a rehab of the Nostrand station. Planning is almost done for that phase, construction will start by the end of they year.

 

According to SubChat, the MTA's trying to save money by using NYCT shops to make signs.

Not the whole branch. Atlantic Terminal is brand new and ENY also still looks good. Maybe a little paint job on ENY, but that's it.

Indeed.

Plus, the area? Seriously? We're talking about LIRR here. What can LIRR do to improve a station area? That's the local governments job.

They're supposed to do anything and everything for $0 because they're the MTA and I pay taxes.

ENY kinda looks ominous. However, there's no point in spending money to rehab the station since there's nothing really around there.

East New York station is one of the scariest LIRR stations in the system, scarier than Wyandanch. Its dark, lit badly, and smack dab in one of the roughest parts of Brooklyn.
