There’s an official L train shutdown date for 2019: April 27.
The MTA recently announced the shutdown date according to a report in NY1. The Canarsie Tunnel will be closed for repairs for 15 months. The L will still run within Brooklyn, but it will no longer be crossing into Manhattan.
Some transportation alternatives during the L-pocalypse will include taking the G, M and J trains. Most trains that connect along the L line will have increased service during the shutdown.
And those with the financial means can consider signing up for a luxury L train alternative that takes people from their front steps to Manhattan. USB ports, wi-fi and breakfast is included in the $155 price tag.
