Re: Full Shutdown of L Train to Be Halted by Cuomo

Posted by Nilet on Fri Jan 4 21:19:17 2019, in response to Re: Full Shutdown of L Train to Be Halted by Cuomo, posted by Michael549 on Fri Jan 4 16:18:31 2019.

The 2/3, 4/5, and 7 saw only weekend closures; not 24/7.

The E/M was closed only for the week between Christmas and New Years when ridership was low; other than that, it was nights and weekends only.

The N/R was the only 24/7 shutdown that lasted for months, and that tunnel had multiple convenient alternate routes.

Given the ridership on the L and the sheer lack of convenient alternatives (no, a bus to an already-packed M train is not convenient; no, a shuttle bus over the Williamsburg is not convenient, no a connection via the G that diverts to LIC or downtown Brooklyn to connect with an already-packed train into Manhattan is not convenient), the L shutdown was poised to be far more disruptive than any of the ones you mentioned.
