On May 5 at 6 p.m. at the Marcy Avenue Armory, city officials will be hashing out the details for the impending L Train Carnasie tunnel repair work that has Greenpointers and New York City residents alike worried about future transportation options in and out of Brooklyn.

At an April 18 meeting, the MTA discussed the structural damage the L Train suffered from Hurricane Sandy, which includes exposed and damaged cables, damaged circuit breakers, and duct break damage. This document gives a larger outline of the project, beginning on page 30, and projects the work to launch in the first part of 2019.

If you’d like to get more information and ask questions about what we can expect in 2019, tomorrow is the perfect time. The MTA will also be holding a second meeting, intended for Manhattan residents but open to the general public, on May 12 at 5:30 p.m. at the Salvation Army Centennial Memorial Theatre in Manhattan.
