The SEA and Section 4(f) Review
The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) & The Metropolitan Transportation Authority/ New York City Transit (MTA NYCT) have prepared a Supplemental Environmental Assessment (SEA) and Section 4(f) Review for the Canarsie Tunnel Project. The proposed project will require full-time, double-track closure of the Canarsie Tunnel under the East River between Manhattan and Brooklyn for 15 months to fully repair damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. The MTA has developed a proposed Alternative Service Plan (ASP) to provide temporary transportation alternatives to L line rail service during the tunnel closure. The proposed ASP includes temporary bus, ferry, bicycle, pedestrian and subway service enhancements. The SEA and Section 4(f) Review presents analysis of the potential impacts of the Canarsie Tunnel ASP.
