What does “track chip-out” mean regarding DeKalb Ave? Is it paint-related or something directly related to the tracks?

I always thought it sounded like a piece of track “chipped” out of place when a train ran over it. But it’s probably not that. I was wondering what it was because it was part of what was keeping the G from going on Queens Boulevard.

A track chip-out is basically reinforcing the concrete. Thge workers remove the concrete around the track bed and then repour it stronger.

Can someone explain to me why it’s necessary to work on every line EVERY weekend? Wouldn’t the whole system work a lot better if the MTA just concentrated it’s forces on 2 or 3 lines, worked on them for a few weeks and got them finished, and then moved on to other lines? It drives me crazy!
