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.
