Avenue Y Train Overpass Undergoing Renovations

The B/Q subway overpass at Avenue Y (between East 15th Street and East 16th Street) began undergoing renovations this week. Contractors are on-scene, clearing off rust and debris, patching up seams and repainting the entire structure.

Hopefully this also means the contractors will repaint the subway embankment walls, which have been plastered in graffiti for weeks, as well as clear out the garbage, pull the weeds and fix the broken sidewalks. Maybe then locals would stop using it as an illegal dumping ground. But, knowing this city, we’re betting that’s a different department’s responsibility…
