Subway riders have mixed reactions to 241st Street stop closure during renovations
It's the end of the line for one Bronx subway station, but only temporarily. The 241st Street stop on the Number 2 line will close at midnight Friday for renovations. The project is part of the MTA?s $167 million plan to overhaul 10 stations along White Plains Road. Like others being redone, the 241st Street stop will get new stairways, floors, canopies and walls. So far reaction to the plan has been mixed. Some say the repairs are a good thing and long overdue, while others are upset about the inconvenience. The station is scheduled to reopen late this year. During the closure, the MTA suggests commuters take the BX-41, which will take riders to the next open station.
