RPA Statement in Response NYC DOT's L Train Project Plans

The following can be attributed to Kate Slevin, Senior Vice President of State Programs and Advocacy, Regional Plan Association:

“We are pleased to see the DOT and MTA are reverting to mitigation plans closer to what was developed over months with elected officials and community members. It’s long past time New York City adopt street designs that do more to prioritize low carbon transportation, like bus transit and cycling, and 14 street is the prefect corridor to try this out. We are calling on both agencies to release frequent and transparent updates on traffic, ridership and cost, so the public can react and respond to travel situations in real time.”
