Manhattan-bound L trains will skip Livonia Av

We're improving accessibility at the station

Canarsie-bound  service has been restored.

Beginning in late March 2021, Manhattan-bound trains will skip Livonia Av while we rehabilitate the station. This bypass will continue until Summer 2021.

We are installing elevators to make this station ADA-accessible by February 2022. In addition, we are replacing track, canopies, windscreen panels, stairways, and making some structural improvements.
