Today, April 30th at 5:00 AM, regular service was resumed on the M line. The completion of work on the century old Myrtle Viaduct on the M line, along with the reopening of the Fresh Pond Bridge this past September restores full service to Brooklyn and Queens residents.
The restructuring of these two elevated lines was necessary for the safety of passengers as well as the guarantee of lasting for years to come. The construction was completed on time and on budget.
Along with completely new elevated structures, the reconstruction included the addition of low vibration tracks to reduce noise, replacement of all signal equipment and cables, 700 feet of new third rail for reliable power and more.
Riders now have access to the full M line as well as connections to J Z service. This improvement comes at a crucial time with the April 2019 closure of the L train.
