Concerned about the L Train shutdown coming in 2019?

It’s going to have a big impact on the Lower East Side. Plans from the MTA and the city’s Department of Transportation will place a lot of pressure of the JMZ trains, lead to more congestion and restrictions on the Williamsburg Bridge and have a big impact on 14th Street.

Coming up tomorrow (Tuesday) evening, Community Board 3’s transportation committee will be tackling the issue. City and state officials will present their latest proposals for dealing with the 15-month interruption in service. The committee will also draft a resolution outlining top concerns about the shutdown plan. There will be a public comment period.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at Grace Church School, 46 Cooper Square.
