The L Train is going to shut down in 2019 for 18 months

“The Metropolitan Transportation Authority plans to close a tunnel that carries the L train, one of New York City’s most crowded subway lines, creating what officials acknowledge will be among the largest disruptions in the transit system’s history.

The decision, which officials planned to announce on Monday, has been awaited for months by riders concerned about the tunnel’s fate. Now, they have their answer: The tunnel, which runs under the East River between Manhattan and Brooklyn, will be shut entirely for a year and a half, starting in January 2019, to repair serious damage caused by Hurricane Sandy.”

Well, this is going to suck.
