When the MTA and NYC DOT released a joint mitigation plan last month, much hope was lost. Was this really it, five measly bullet-pointed pages? Today, hope is somewhat revived that more than what has already been announced will be done: In a press release published today, the MTA and NYC DOT announced a series of jointly held open houses for this and next month to “aimed at engaging” impacted communities in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Queens, apparently, will not be impacted whatsoever and is not worth either group’s time.

MTA and DOT reps will “provide riders with critical information about alternative travel options” during the L’s 15-month shutdown between Bk and the city. The meetings are open to the public, and the release specifies that “attendees may arrive at any time during the meetings.”

There will be two open houses in Brooklyn, both from 5 to 8pm and at the following addresses and dates:

Wednesday, January 24
Progress High School (850 Grand St.), East Williamsburg

Thursday, February 8
Williamsburg Community Center (195 Graham Ave.)
