MTA Announces Maintenance Work on L Line

Starting July 9, the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s (MTA) New York City Transit will be doing overnight maintenance, cleaning and repair work on segments of the L line in Brooklyn. 

The work, which will take place at stations between Lorimer St and Broadway Junction, will be performed for four consecutive weeknights on July 9-13, July 16-20 and July 23-27. L service will be suspended in both directions between Lorimer St and Broadway Junction while the work is being done. Free shuttle buses will be available. 

The work is part of MTA’s Subway Action Plan and FASTRACK program.

"The unfettered track access of FASTRACK enables us to advance Subway Action Plan goals and minimize customer impact by allowing workers to do more in less time,” said MTA Chairman Joseph Lhota. “We are on an urgent path to stabilizing and modernizing the subway system and intensive overnight work will help us get there.”
