Community Board 7 will hold an information meeting on Monday, March 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the Museum of Natural History to explain the MTA station closures to the public.

The B-C stations at 110th, 86th and 72nd Streets are set to close for up to six months each. The 110th station will close first, starting on April 9.

Assembly member Linda Rosenthal has called for a delay in the closures to force the MTA to hold hearings, but the closure date is approaching with no announcement of a hearing or delay.

      June – August all three stations closed!

      The “Allowable Duration” column says it all.

      Who’s attending this meeting to hear public comments? Are state government reps who provide oversight or MTA decision makers planning to attend?

      Also on the topic: the federal government just joined a lawsuit against the MTA for a $27 million renovation to the Middletown Road station completed in 2014 that didn’t include elevators, and good for them! This is an untenable look for the MTA.

      Does that mean 81st street stop will be available???
