L Train Slowdown Must Be Transparent!


PCAC, along with other transit advocates, sent a letter to Governor Cuomo and MTA Chairman Foye noting that we are happy to hear that L train construction is moving ahead of schedule, and calling for complete transparency throughout the project (regular construction updates, cost, safety, air quality, etc…). We are pleased that some previous plans, such as turning 14th Street into a bus and truck street, have been put back in place. We ask that the MTA not rule out other mitigation strategies, such as HOV3 restrictions and inter-borough bus service across the Williamsburg Bridge. In addition, PCAC is advocating for dedicated construction office in both Manhattan and Brooklyn to answer questions and provide visual updates to the public, and also lengthen G trains as a service to riders – not only during construction, but going forward.
