In order to see the draft concept plan released by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and the New York City Department of Transportation (NYC DOT), visit mta.info, scroll down to ‘L Canarsie Tunnel Reconstruction,’ and click on ‘View community presentation.’
The impact, not only on 14th Street, will be significant when the L Train shuts down. Residents and businesses on adjacent blocks, on both sides of 14th Street from river to river, will be severely affected by increased traffic. It’s imperative that individuals, block associations, community groups, and small business owners contact the MTA with their input; you can leave your comment on the website. Contact all of your elected officials and tell them what you think of this plan. Buckle up, Villagers, it’s going to be a bumpy ride! So take action.
