MTA Board To Hold Emergency Meeting

Earlier today, the MTA announced that it will be holding an emergency board meeting this Tuesday to discuss matters related to the train reconstruction project. Here are more details via the press release they asked me to share:

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) today announced it will hold an emergency MTA Board meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 15, at 12:00 p.m. to be briefed on matters related to the  Train reconstruction project. At the meeting, which will be open to the public, the Board will be briefed by WSP on the alternative  Train design modifications to the original tunnel restoration plan, also designed by WSP.

WSP has studied the proposed design alternatives and the preliminary new construction schedule developed by the construction manager. WSP will be recommending to the Board that it pursue the modified plan as a better alternative, as it does not require a total shutdown of  train service. The Board will also be discussing the concept of hiring a new consultant reporting directly to the Chairman and the Board to oversee operation, oversight and precautions for the  train and the tunnel reconstruction.
