Good news for anyone sick of getting off the G at Smith and 9th Street and waiting for an F train just to go a couple more stops: Starting July 5th, the G train will continue on for five more stops into Brooklyn. The additional service is being added because of the massive Culver Viaduct Rehabiliation project, which, according to the Post, will prevent the G train from reversing itself at the next stop (Fourth Avenue). Come summer it will stop at Fourth Avenue-Ninth Street, Seventh Avenue, 15th Street-Prospect Park and Fort Hamilton Parkway before finally reversing course after the Church Avenue stop. This may be the best silver lining to the rehab work being done at Smith and 9th Street; last we heard the MTA plans to close the station entirely for at least nine months next year, and the entire project is expected to take 4 years. A spokesman for NYC Transit tells us, "We have said that we would look to make the [G train] terminal change permanent, as it makes sense both from a customer and operational perspective."
