From the Daily News:
NYC Transit is spending $700 million on a blitz to fix up subway stations, officials said Monday.
In a new program stretching over the next five years, 150 stations will get upgrades: new lighting, fresh coats of paint and sturdier platform edges, officials said.
Transit officials aim to improve more stations with limited funds by being more selective about what repairs to make, said Fred Smith, acting vice president of capital plan management.
About two dozen stations are slated for "renewal," or major overhauls, costing an average of $15 million, officials said.
An additional 130 stations will get more limited upgrades, focusing on fixing their most defective components, railings and leaking ceilings.
One of the first stations slated for a multimillion-dollar renewal is the A train stop at 104th St. and Liberty Ave. in eastern Queens.
Other affected stations are Seneca, Central and Forest Aves. and Fresh Pond Road on the M line; Pennsylvania, Van Siclen, Saratoga and Rockaway Aves. on the 3, and Hunters Point Ave. on the 7.
