M train riders in Bushwick are getting the Central Avenue stop back today.

The station was closed during a five month, $11 million facelift.

Structural damage was fixed and deteriorating staircases and drainage systems were replaced.

The station also features new artwork and a renovated mezzanine.

"It was desperately needed, and very timely that they renewed the entire station, and it's just very pleasant looking," said State Senator Martin Malave Dilan.

"This was unattractive, deplorable and today what we have is a safer attractive train station, one that we can be proud of," said City Councilwoman Diana Reyna.

This was the second station on the M line to be renovated thanks to federal funding.

Work is still being done at three stations in Queens.
