MTA New York City Transit performed major station repairs and upgrades at the 167 St station on the Grand Concourse line, reopening the station in January 2019. This station originally opened for service in July 1933.
While crews made critical repairs to the station infrastructure such as concrete and metal platforms, stairs, beams and columns, they also modernized the station with enhancements to entrances including stairs, LED lighting, digital signage providing real-time service information, and new turnstile areas with security cameras and brighter lighting.
Countdown clocks and Help Points, which allow customers to communicate quickly with staff for assistance or emergencies, were installed, as well as new station furniture and platform safety enhancements such as tactile edge warning strips to improve customer safety.
