The MTA continues to slowly provide more information on how exactly they’re planning to fix the L train tunnel, a process that could take anywhere from 18 months to three long, bleak, North Brooklyn-destroying years.

According to the Daily News, the tunnel shutdown will start in 2019. 

In board documents released on Friday, the MTA says that it plans on replacing and repairing 56 miles of power, communication and signal cables, three miles of track and a water pump room. They’re also planning on renovating the Bedford Ave and First Ave stations and adding elevators.

The first step, awarding a contract for the project, is expected to be done by the end of the year.
