The MTA New York Transit Authority has been making steady progress on the restoration and upgrade work of the F and G Culver line viaduct between the Carroll Street Station and the 4th Avenue Station.
Along Smith Street, the black Christo-like wrapping, which has kept chunks of cement from falling from the crumbling 80-year old structure for years, is slowly being removed as crews are busy repairing.
The projected completion date for this $320.2 million undertaking is the second quarter of 2013 and will not only include the "structurally sound, more attractive viaduct," but also new state of the art signal system and low vibrating rails.
And look, a few days ago, workers were even weeding and cleaning up the sidewalk underneath the Culver viaduct. It looks more attractive already, I'd say.
