65th Place dead end.
Remember that this weekend, the M train will not run at Myrtle/Wyckoff, Seneca Avenue, Forest Avenue and Fresh Pond Road.
The New York City Transit’s Track Construction Division has scheduled the renewal of mainline track on the Myrtle Avenue line between Myrtle/Wyckoff and Metropolitan Ave.
The weekend closure will last until Monday, December 24.
From 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays, the MTA will be doing preparatory work. The track replacement phase begins at 10 p.m. Friday, working continuously until 5 a.m. on Monday morning.
NYCT will stage a mobile crane adjacent to the track structure to hoist and lower track panels and materials. The crane will be located at 65th Place, between 68th Avenue and the dead end, shown above.
Flagging and traffic devices will be used for public safety, and parking will be restricted at the street crane location.
Here’s a note from NYCT:
We ask neighbors to refrain from parking their vehicles towards the end of the dead end where the crew will be working. Parking will be restricted only on the side of Mafera Playground, but our crews will allow residents to continue to park on the residential portion of the street.
Construction for the new spray showers at Juniper Valley Park is already underway, but here’s what the layout of the new design looks like.
The $2 million revamp will not only bring in new spray showers, but also new concrete, lowered fencing, new plantings and ADA accessibility.
We all know how popular the spray shower gets among kids during the summer season.
Though the construction is expected to finish by next fall, we’re sure the children of Middle Village and greater Queens will enjoy the end product.
