MTA Releases Video Detailing Damage and Work Needed on the L Train's Canarsie Tunnel

You’ve heard of the impending L train shutdown, but do you know the specific reasons why it needs to be done?

In this video released yesterday by the MTA, learn all about the damage Hurricane Sandy did to the Canarsie Tunnel, tracks and equipment, and hear a detailed description of the options available for the fix.

Of the nine under river subway tunnels damaged by Superstorm Sandy in 2012, the Canarsie Tunnel (L) was hit hardest. MTA is considering two construction options to repair the tunnel and a variety of efforts to minimize impact to customers.

Check out the MTA’s project page for more info on the Canarsie Tunnel reconstruction project.
