L train shutdown to begin on April 27

The L train shutdown will officially begin on Saturday, April 27, MTA officials say.

The Canarsie tunnel between Brooklyn and Manhattan will be shut down for 15 months for reconstruction. There will be no L line service between 8th Avenue in Manhattan to Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg.

L trains WILL run between Bedford Avenue and Canarsie-Rockaway Parkway.

The MTA and DOT have planned the following as alternative options for riders: five additional bus routes, a new M14 Select Bus Service on 14th Street, and ferry service, all set to begin on Sunday, April 21.

Subway lines like the G, J and Z will make an additional 1,000 roundtrips, the MTA says, beginning April 28.
