G Train service returns to Long Island City on Tuesday

corrosionAug. 29, 2014 By Michael Florio

The G train will resume full service again on Tuesday, September 2, after being closed between Greenpoint and Long Island City for five weeks.

The MTA shut down G service at the Greenpoint/Manhattan Ave, 21st/Jackson Avenue and Court Square stations in order to repair the tunnel that links those stations, which was damaged by Superstorm Sandy.

More than 3 million gallons of salt water flooded the tunnel during the storm, which damaged pump controls, electrical equipment, and a variety of other systems.

The MTA has spent more than $80 million repairing the tunnel.
