Cuomo to announce early completion of R train tunnel repairs
R service between Brooklyn and Manhattan expected to return Monday
Gov. Andrew Cuomo is scheduled to hold a press conference on Sunday announcing the early reopening of the R train’s Montague Tunnel, closed for more than a year after sustaining heavy damage during Superstorm Sandy.
The governor’s office scheduled the conference for 2:45 p.m. Sunday afternoon in Manhattan at the Whitehall Street Subway Station.
R line service connecting Brooklyn to Lower Manhattan is expected to return in time for rush hour Monday morning, though the MTA had not made an official announcement by early Sunday.
