The project will happen in three phases. The entire project to modernize track signals along the G train line is expected to be complete in early September.

According to the MTA, about 160,000 commuters ride the G train each day.

MTA officials say the signals on the train date back to when the line originally opened in the 1930s and they are a frequent source of service disruptions and delays.
