168 St Elevator Replacement

Beginning 12:01 AM Saturday, January 5, 1 trains will not stop at 168 St. 1 service will resume in early 2020. We are replacing all four station elevators, so the 1 platform will be inaccessible. The A and C trains will still be running to this station.

We are installing four new elevator cars. We are upgrading elevator shafts and stairways. We are replacing mechanical components. This work will make the elevators more reliable
