The Ditmas Park Corner blog shares some good news of renovations to come at the Cortelyou Road, Beverley Road and Parkside Avenue subway stops. (News of the Parkside reno came out this October.) The renovations, according to DPC, “will be extensive, including rebuilding stairs, repairing concrete, painting throughout, and improving the lighting. But the designs of the stations will be maintained.” Work should begin in September 2013 on all three stations at once. Subway closures will happen at four to five month intervals.
