Upgrades coming to A line stations

From the Queens Chronicle:

Joseph Raskin and Linda Tonn, both of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, presented the city’s plans to revamp a number of subway stations along the A line at last Thursday’s [CB10] meeting at the Knights of Columbus Hall in South Ozone Park.

Raskin and Tonn said the city will install an elevator that complies with federal disability regulations at the Lefferts Boulevard Station.

Additional repairs will be made at the Lefferts Boulevard station, including to the mezzanine’s walls, and additional lighting will be installed.

The city plans to make repairs to a number of stops along the Liberty Avenue line, including to the 111th, 104th, 88th and 80th Street stops. Work will also be conducted at the Rockaway Boulevard stop.

Wow, it Only took 80 years to finally upgrade this section of the A line!
How about cleaning off all of the graffiti that
Iines nearly the entire elevated structure from 75 St to Lefferts?
It's been an eyesore for too long!

Lefferts Blvd train station is such an eye sore, when a train rolls in and the doors are opened people run to the stairs because they are not wide enough to handle so many passengers at the same time. the train station looks really bad, likes it's falling apart.
