First the Second Place F/G subway entrance in Carroll Gardens was supposed to re-open in February, then it was delayed till April and now that it is June, it s still closed. So what's up?
Apparently, about 60% of the stair treads leading down into the station have failed the initial safety inspection by the Metropolitan Transit Authority. Before the station opens, the problem needs to be fixed and the stair treads need to be brought into compliance.
The new date for the re-opening has been scheduled for June 17th. I know many neighborhood commuters have been dying to find out. Lets hope that date will not come and go like the others.
The F train subway plaza and the staircase leading to the station at Second Place were blocked off during construction of the new building at 360 Smith Street back in the fall of 2010 . Since then, riders have been forced to use the smaller, narrower entrance at the corner of Second Street.
