NEW YORK — New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority has reopened two 100-year-old subway stations on the 3 Line in Brooklyn. The Sutter Avenue-Rutland Road and Junius Street stations have been closed since October 2016 for extensive overhauls, according to the agency.

The two facilities are part of an $88-million rehabilitation of seven elevated stations in the Brownsville and East New York neighborhoods of Brooklyn.

According to the MTA, the recently renovated facilities had open-air platforms that were exposed to New York’s varied weather for nearly a century.

Station improvements include rehabilitated platforms, including platform windscreens, guardrails, concrete panels, and light poles. The stations’ mezzanine, including exterior and interior walls, windows, door, and floor surfaces, were also replaced. The agency also included new tactile warning strips, installed new lighting, signage, and other cosmetic enhancements.

Funding for the project was allocated through the agency’s capital program. The MTA has earmarked $14.5 billion for subway improvements during the next several years.
