Some A line stations in Queens will undergo a major facelift, but first, they'll have to close for three months.

The MTA says they'll be doing work on five Queens-bound platform stations.

The Queens-bound side of the 88th St-Boyd Avenue and the 104 St-Oxford Avenue Stations will fully close from May 12 to August 18.

The work is part of a $39 million project to upgrade stations that first opened in the early 1900s.

The MTA says they will install better lighting, along with new platform stairs, floors, doors and windows on the platforms.
