[Ads-l] "Drop" becoming confusing

Headline I saw today:

L-ong time coming: Transit agencies drop plan for commuters during L-train
closure
https://www.brooklynpaper.com/stories/40/51/dtg-l-train-plans-update-2017-12-22-bk.html

When I first saw the headline, I assumed it meant that the plan was being
thrown away. It was only when I read the entire article that I learned the
plan was just announced.
