Some South Bronx subway stations to be closed for renovations

Residents in the Bronx may have their commutes disrupted. Beginning Saturday March 27, Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) workers closed the 167th Street and Mt. Eden Avenue stops on the No. 4 Line so the stations can undergo renovations.

Officials say closing the stations will enable them to conduct renovations that include replacing stairways and lighting, painting, and installing art-glass windows.

The $42 million project will also include renovations to the 170th Street and 176th Street stations. Transit officials say the project should last three months. Free shuttle buses will be provided during the construction.
