In 2019, the MTA will conduct a planned 18-month shutdown of L Train service between Brooklyn and Manhattan. However, no concrete plans have been outlined by the agency or City to mitigate the shutdown’s impact. A coalition of local civic organizations, business alliances and transportation advocacy organizations has prepared a draft proposal of potential mitigation efforts. Join us at a forum to learn about the proposal and offer feedback.
