Oy to the vey folks, hot on the heels of work on the Montague Street tunnel and resulting service changes, comes word that your A,C, 2/3 service might be next. M.T.A. chairman and C.E.O. Tom Prendergast tells reporters:
CapitalNY: Another reporter asked which tube closures are coming next.
“Well the ones in lower Manhattan, so it’s more like Clark Street, it’s Montague, it’s Cranberry, but I don’t know off the top of my head which ones,” he said. “But it’s the ones in lower Manhattan where the storm surge occurred.”
The Clark Street tunnel carries the 2 and 3 trains and the Cranberry Street tube carries the A and C lines.
“We focus on, first of all, anything we can do on nightly closures is where the focus would be,” Prendergrast said. “Then you look at weekend closures, and then…a permanent seven-day-a-week for over a number of months.”
“Hopefully we can do them with just nightly closures,” he said.
