Earlier this morning we posted that the MTA had planned for the L Train to be down during the weekend of The Northside Festival (June 15 - 17) and that a number of politicians -- including Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz -- had sent a letter asking them to reconsider. It worked, as the MTA has moved the L Train service outage to the following weekend (June 22 - 24). The L Train will still, however, be down (8th Ave to Lorimer Stop in Williamsburg) on Memorial Day Weekend (May 25 - 27). Shuttle buses across the Williamsburg bridge and augmented M14 bus service will be available.
