me too. lord knows none of this will ever happen.

it would be a terrible thing in many ways but i think the best thing to do to fix our current mess would be increase bus service a ton and shut down individual lines for a year to fix them

This is exactly what should be done, shut down the entire line, close the street above it to private car traffic, and run a shitload of buses. They'd get the work done much faster and much cheaper than the way they do it now. But there's no political will to tell people maybe they shouldn't be driving their personal car up and down 6th Avenue.

hmmmmmmmmmm

Local politicians, business owners and representatives from neighborhood groups came together to demand action from the MTA and DOT in advance of the 15-month L train closure slated for April 2019.

Neither organization has made any public report on their plans to ease traffic congestion or protect local businesses, according to a statement from City Councilmember Stephen Levin’s office, and the community is calling on them to release reports for public comment.

...

The city has proposed a fleet of diesel busses to carry commuters across the Williamsburg Bridge, though neighborhood groups have balked at the environmental implications of diesel, demanding cleaner busses instead.

Even then, there’s still traffic to deal with. “There has to be a dedicated bus lane on the Williamsburg Bridge,” said Councilmember Levin. He also called for priority given to busses once they cross the bridge, with lanes planned to join them seamlessly with Manhattan’s traffic.

it's like a lottery where if you win you get to purchase an NYC apartment at a very reduced price. your income has to be within a certain range to qualify.
