Quick quote from the above link:
"Governor Cuomo announces May 30 Restoration of A S icon Service

On May 16, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced service on the storm-damaged Rockaway line of the A line icon train will resume May 30 after an all-out, six-month MTA effort to rebuild the 3.5 mile-long stretch of the Rockaway flats including 1,500 feet of washed out tracks, replace miles of signal, power and communications wires, and rehabilitate two stations that were completely flooded. The new work included installing two miles of corrugated marine steel sheet wall 30 feet into the soft soil of the right-of-way along Jamaica Bay to protect the track against future washouts and ensure the line is ready to handle future coastal storms."
