Weekend renovation brightens Sutter Ave. L train station
The MTA on Tuesday announced the completion of functional and aesthetic renovations at the L train’s Sutter Avenue station in Brownsville.
The work was part of MTA New York City Transit’s Re-NEW-vation program, which utilizes planned weekend service outages to perform upgrades, repairs and enhanced cleaning in stations that need an overhaul.
The Sutter Avenue station was last renovated in 2006. At that time new windscreens and canopies were installed along the entire length of the platforms. At the same time, a stained-glass artwork featuring flowers, called “The Habitat for the Yellow Bird” by Takoya Noda, was installed.
Assemblymember Latrice Walker, who represents Ocean Hill-Brownsville, commented,. “The Sutter Avenue station was certainly in need of a facelift, including gutter repairs and improved lighting. I applaud the MTA for responding to customer concerns.”
MTA New York Transit President Richard Davey said, “Over the last weekend while planned track maintenance took place, Sutter Avenue received a fresh coat of paint after transit workers scraped peeling paint and primed surfaces.
“As customers enter the refurbished station, they will notice new LED lighting brightening stairwells, signage, ADA tactile warning tiles and floor tiles and stairway globes. Crews also made platform concrete repairs and door repairs,” he added.
Sutter Avenue is the 44th station to be enhanced. In total, NYCT plans to complete 50 “re-NEW-vations” by the end of the year.
