The 30th and 36th Avenue (N/W) stations in Astoria are still on schedule to reopen by the end of June after months of controversy, an MTA spokesperson said Monday.

Owners of businesses near the stations, who have complained that the project has cut into their profits, say that they are cautiously optimistic that the stations will reopen on time after the seven-month closure.

At the same time, the business owners warn that the subway closures have driven some shops and restaurants out of business, and that businesses near the 39th Avenue and Broadway stations— which are set to close in July for seven months— will soon be in danger.
