Weekend of Aug. 16th

Good evening everyone. It’s another busy weekend on the rails. 1 train service is suspended north of 96 St. Shuttle buses are running along Broadway and St. Nicholas Av as a replacement. In a bit of good news, the 5 is finally running into Manhattan again after so many weekends of shuttle-only service. The bad news, however, is that the line is being truncated to E 180 St northbound. Wrapping up the service suspensions, there are no A trains running to/from Lefferts Blvd. Trains instead run to Howard Beach. On the subject of rerouted trains, downtown F trains are running via 53rd Street, and uptown trains run via the Cranberry tubes.

There are also several instances of express and local runs scattered about. The conga line once again heads to Queens Blvd as both E and F trains run local in both directions. On the 6-line, downtown trains are running express through Parkchester while uptown trains bypass local stops between Hunts Point Av and Parkchester. Downtown A and D trains are running local along Central Park West. Finally, uptown C trains are running express from Canal St to Columbus Circle to allow for the aforementioned F reroute.

Weekend of Aug. 9th

Hello everyone. This weekend, we have a few service changes that are only in effect on Saturday, rather than the entire weekend. Included in that, 5 train service is suspended south of East 180 Street, while 2 train service is split at 149 St with trains from 241 St running express between E 180 St and 3 Av. Manhattan-bound 6 trains run express between Pelham Bay Park and Parkchester. Finally, as part of the one-day only service changes, uptown 4 and 6 trains are bypassing local stops between Union Square and Grand Central.

Moving along to the service disruptions that will be in place all weekend, Brooklyn-bound A and C trains run via the Rutgers tubes, while downtown A and D trains run local along Central Park West. Downtown F trains run via the E-line between Roosevelt Av and 5 Av. Finally, we’ve got a couple of express runs on the Manhattan-bound 7 trains and downtown E trains.

That’s pretty much it folks. Click on the link for the map for full details. Enjoy the weekend.

Weekend of Aug. 2nd

Good afternoon everyone. Well, would you look at that; the summer is about halfway over. We’re already in August. Time is flying by. Anyhow, let’s take a look at what’s going on this weekend on the subway. Work on the Greenpoint tubes continues, but we all knew that. That’ll wrap up early next month. We’ve also got the seemingly never-ending work on the White Plains Rd line in the Bronx. It’s actually the last full weekend for the split 2 services and the lack of 5-train service south of E 180 St. Wrapping up the usual suspects of service disruptions, once again, everything is local on Queens Blvd.

There are a few other service changes in place, like the suspension of the Franklin Avenue shuttle, one-directional reroutes of the F via 53rd Street and the Cranberry tubes, as well as a few express runs scattered about. The map has all of the details. Click on the link for it. As always, enjoy the weekend.

Weekend of July 26th

Good afternoon everyone. It’s the weekend again folks, so that must mean weekend subway work. First off, starting tonight, and running continuously through early September, there will be no G-train service north of Nassau Av. Shuttle buses will be running along Manhattan Ave making all station stops between Court Sq and Nassau Av, as well as along McGuinness Blvd making stops near G-line station between Metropolitan Av-Lorimer St and Court Sq. A free out-of-system transfer between the G and J & M lines at Broadway and Lorimer St respectively.

With that Sandy-related service change out of the way, let’s get back to the normal mess. The 2 is still split at 149 St-Grand Concourse with the northern section running express southbound. The 5 still isn’t running past E 180 St. And once again, the E and F are running local on Queens Blvd. New additions this week include the suspension of the N between Queensboro Plaza and Times Square, the R being rerouted via both 53rd Street and 6th Avenue and another shutdown on the Liberty Avenue elevated between Rockaway Blvd and Lefferts Blvd.

As always, check the map for the details. And just a reminder folks, FASTRACK hits the Central Park West line again next week so plan for that.

Enjoy the weekend everyone.

Weekend of July 19th

Good afternoon everyone. Here are the high-(low-)lights of this weekend’s service disruptions. It’s about the same amount of service changes, but they’re scattered in different locations than previous weekends. The 5 is still suspended south of E 180 St. On the bright side, there is 2 train service, albeit split up at 149 St-Grand Concourse. We’ve also got the return of the Flushing line suspension west of Queensboro Plaza. Finally, the A and C line disruptions north of 145 St are still in place. This is the last weekend for this particular service change, at least for the month that is. Other service disruptions include the Brooklyn-bound F trains running via 53rd Street and the Cranberry Street tunnels and Queens-bound A trains bypassing 111 St. Details are available on the map linked below Enjoy the weekend.

SATURDAY UPDATE: In a bit of good news, the split service operation on the 2-line is ending early. Like tonight early, so you won’t have to transfer between trains for 7th Avenue-Bronx service. 5 train service is still suspended south of the Dyre Avenue line however, so keep that in mind. I’ve updated the map for this small change. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Weekend of July 12th

Good afternoon everyone. Once again, it’s Friday, and that means weekend subway work. Most of the big disruptions from last week (2/5 suspension between E 180 St & 149 St, A from 168 St to 207 St) carries over to this weekend. There are a few new service changes in place as well. Manhattan-bound A and C trains are running via the Rutgers Street (F-line) tube from Jay St to W 4 St. Manhattan-bound D trains are running express between Bay Pkwy and 9 Av. Finally, we have another full-time disruption in place, this time on the D-line. Until the 21st, Manhattan-bound D trains are bypassing 182-183 Sts. For the record, in-bound B trains are also skipping the station during the week as well. That’s pretty much all she wrote. The map has everything in detail. Click on the link for that. Enjoy the weekend.

Weekend of July 5th

Good afternoon and Happy Independence Day. As it is a holiday weekend, service disruptions are relatively light. There are still a few big ones in place though. This weekend is the first of two where 2 and 5-line service in the Bronx is replaced by shuttle buses. Also, work on the northern portion of the 8th Avenue line continues from last week. There are a few bi-directional local runs in place, one on Queens Blvd and the other along 4th Avenue in Brooklyn (though the latter is only in place on Sunday). A few other minor service changes are in effect as well. As always, the map has the details. Click the link below for it.

P.S. Starting tomorrow, both Buhre Av and Zerega Av on the 6-line are closed for station renovation.
