Transit officials say work on nine stations along the N line in Brooklyn will begin next week.

The project will be completed in two phases.

The century-old stations are between Eighth Avenue in Sunset Park and 86th Street in Bensonhurst.

Beginning Monday, the stations’ Manhattan-bound platforms will be closed for the 14-month-long rehabilitation. After that work will start on the Coney Island-bound platforms.

The renovations include platform and overpass improvements, new stairways, enhanced safety features and upgraded communication systems. The Eighth Avenue station will get ADA-compliant ramps, and four elevators will be installed at the New Utrecht Avenue station for easier access to N and D trains.

More information and travel alternatives are available the MTA website.
