The 39 Av subway station on the N, W lines reopened on Monday, January 28, 2019, weeks earlier than scheduled. The station was closed in summer 2018 for a major repair project that included work to the station’s structural steel and concrete, and modernization work that included new digital signage and a redesigned turnstile area.

The station was also renamed as 39 Av-Dutch Kills to reflect the neighborhood’s history.

MTA Arts & Design commissioned "Hellion Equilibrium" by Sarah Morris to bring color and transparency to the station platforms. The vibrant tempered laminated colored glass artwork references an abstracted rendering of the station’s GPS location. Morris’s span of work has included visual references to GPS technology, topological mapping and industrial graphics, with an interest in patterns of movement within cities.
