If you want a more specific answer, find someone who can actually see the future.

You know, you just as well could have not replied to this question; this sort of facetiousness adds little to the conversation, and there are indeed people on here who likely could give more information than is available publicly on the Sea Beach renovations if they were inclined to share.

Yup, my bad. It was very early in the AM. The general point remains.

Ok so on the topic of (N) via express:

-The blue plywood walls are being taken down at 53rd Street.

-The walls between 53rd and 59th are already down.

-However the big pit at 59th Street that they opened up for elevator installation is still there (and the blue walls walling it off to the public)

I've tweeted out to @nyctsubway about it but I haven't gotten a response yet.

Isn't the local part of that stretch next or was it just the Express track pillar that was the problem?

It was the median ventilation grilles over the express tracks that were the problem.

I'm wondering what to do about 45/53 being served by the (N) on the NYC map I'm making as I assumed it was related to the Sea Beach closures. I checked the MTA website a little while ago and the July 2019 system map shows the (N) stopping at 45th and 53rd. Don't know if this is intentional or a mistake.

Those two concepts happen to involve one route. Beyond that, there's no relation.

Structural work has required (N) trains to make those two stops. Unrelated to the Sea Beach work.

Ah, OK. Then given the MTA it could be completed anytime in the next fifteen years.

Replacing the Elevators at 181 St A Station

We're replacing the elevators

Beginning Saturday, August 3, through Summer 2020, the elevators to the A train at the Ft Washington Av/West 184 St entrance/exit will be temporarily closed so we can install three new, replacement elevators.

During this time, the station will remain open and A trains will continue serving the station in both directions.

The Overlook Terrace passageway will remain open, but there will be no free access between Ft Washington Av and Overlook Terrace during the elevator replacement project.

Uhhhh, there's still a gigantic hole in the street (literally) and blue plywood everywhere on the express tracks in 59th Street station...

Are they sure about that?

Just wondering why, if (E)(F) runs local in both directions in Queens, (R) still runs to Continental instead of to Astoria or 96th St.

Is it the yard issue?

I find it dumb, but most of the time either Astoria is out because of construction at Astoria Blvd, 96th St cant be used because of the (M) , and Queens Plaza is out because of a de-energized switch IIRC.

Why not just have it run to Queensboro Plaza? (Or if you want to go crazy, have the (Q) run local in Manhattan for Broadway express work and have the (R) terminate on the express tracks at 42nd).
