Diaz and MTA's Prendergast tour 149th Street-Grand Concourse subway

The 149th Street-Grand Concourse station
is one of the worst in the city.
Earlier this week, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. met with MTA President Thomas Predergast in one of the worst subway stations in the Bronx, if not the city, to discuss much needed improvements to the station.

In September, Diaz announced that the MTA had agreed to major renovations at the station. The 138th Street-3rd Avenue subway stations will also undergo major renovations. They are scheduled to begin in Spring 2012.

The 149th Street-Grand Concourse station will get a new paint job, reconstructed platform edges, special grouting to prevent leaks and ventilation repairs. Repairs to the 138th Street-3rd Avenue station include reconstructing the east mezzanine passageway and an interior stairway. The work should be completed by early 2013.
