The MTA’s widely dreaded but necessary project to repair the L train tunnel between Manhattan and Brooklyn is now complete. Governor Cuomo said the project is done after 12 months of work to repair damage caused by Superstorm Sandy, Gothamist noted.
- Worth Noting: The MTA says L train service will resume its previous service schedules on Monday, with adjustments under the MTA coronavirus Essential Service Plan. Currently, fewer than 500,000 riders use the subway system each day, compared with 5.5 million daily riders before the pandemic began, WSJ reported.
- Time will tell: Workers mounted new cables to the side of the tunnel wall, eliminating the need to completely rebuild it. Critics worry the completed plan will not be as effective over the long term.
