Good evening. Before I start with this weekend’s service disruptions, I must inform you that the MTA has dropped the hammer on 7-line riders. Starting at the end of next month, service from Flushing will be truncated to Queensboro Plaza, for what could amount to over 20 weekends throughout this year, as well as 74 St-Broadway for several weekends as well. This is primarily due to CBTC installation on the Flushing line, but also to ensure the safety and stability of the underwater Steinway tunnels following Hurricane Sandy and general upkeep of the tracks and equipment along the line. I mention all of this so you’ll keep it in the back of your minds and plan for this.
With that out of the way, let’s get back to the “normal” mess we always deal with. First off, riders on the Q-line will not like that the Q isn’t running north of Parkside Av this weekend. Of course, that means it’ll be slow going on the Broadway line with local-only service. Speaking of truncated service, the J line is also being shortened this weekend. Manhattan-bound trains will only run to Essex St instead of Chambers St. We’ve also got Brooklyn-bound A and C trains running via the Rutgers tubes while Queens-bound F trains run through 53rd Street. Finally, Manhattan-bound N trains run via the West End (D) line. There are also a few express runs scattered about; nothing major on that front. As always, it’s all mapped out for you. Enjoy the weekend folks.
P.S. A reminder folks, FASTRACK hits Queens Blvd once again next week, which shuts down the line between Roosevelt Av and either 21 St-Queensbridge or 50 St.
Good evening folks. Here are this weekend’s service disruptions. Since work was cancelled last weekend due to the inclement weather, we have a couple of disruptions carrying over to this weekend. Namely, the A trains bound for the Rockaways will be truncated to Howard Beach while the Rockaway Park shuttle replaces service on the northern half of the Rockaway Peninsula. Also, work on the Hillside Avenue line is forcing Manhattan-bound E and F trains over to the express tracks between Parsons Blvd and Forest Hills.
Onto the regularly scheduled service changes, the F is running via the C Brooklyn-bound between W 4 St and Jay St while Queens-bound trains run through 53rd Street for the umpteenth time. We also have the return of the N via the D-line reroute. This time, it’s Coney Island-bound. Wrapping this up, we’ve got Manhattan-bound 6 trains running express from Pelham Bay Park through Parkchester, D trains are stopping at 23 and 14 Sts in both directions and Queens-bound R trains are express between Queens Plaza and Roosevelt Av. That’s all folks, the map has it all drawn out for you. Have a nice weekend.
Good morning everyone and Happy New Year. With yesterday’s snow storm and this morning’s brutally cold temperatures, construction work scheduled for this weekend has been cancelled. Here’s the normal service map for those interested. Keep warm out there folks.
Normal Service Map
Good evening everyone. It’s yet another light weekend on the rails. Though it isn’t if you’re using the E-line. Along with the continuing work that sends the A trains bound for Far Rockaway to Rockaway Park and splits up the D at Bedford Park Blvd, E-trains are running via the F-line in both directions between 21 St-Queensbridge and West 4 St. Enjoy this weekend because starting next week, we get back into the regular swing of things with quite a few service changes in place. The map is below as usual.
Good evening everyone. It’s another light weekend on the rails in terms of subway construction. The only major reroute is on the A-line in the Rockaways. Trains run to/from Rockaway Park instead of Far Rockaway again. Bronx-bound 6 trains are bypassing stops between Parkchester and Pelham Bay Park and all 5 trains skip Pelham Pkwy.
See the map for the details. Enjoy the weekend and Happy Holidays.
Good evening everyone. With the upcoming snowstorm expected to hit this weekend, all above ground work has been cancelled. Scheduled work below ground will continue though. 5-trains still bypass Pelham Pkwy and service on the G-line will be replaced by shuttle buses between Nassau Av and Court Sq. Also, D-line service will be split up at Bedford Park Blvd as it was last weekend. Speaking of last weekend, it has been brought to my attention that I neglected to mention the additional E-line service (which is supposed to continue this weekend as well). I noticed that, but I was away from my computer for most of the weekend and was unable to update the map. I always try to keep up with any last minute updates and general errors I may have missed, but I as always implore my readers to check the MTA’s website for any and all service changes.
That’s all for this weekend. I will try to keep on top of any changes in service due to the snow. The map is linked below. Enjoy the weekend.
Good evening folks. It’s another light weekend on the rails, though not as light if today’s post title is any indication. While there are no service changes on the entire island of Manhattan (besides the ongoing work in the Montague tubes obviously), but there are still some significant disruptions in place in the other boroughs. For instance, the M is completely suspended again. (Though this may depend on when the emergency work on the L-line wraps up; more on that below.) The F and Q-lines are also affected by a shutdown of the Culver/Brighton tracks between Coney Island and Avenue X or Brighton Beach respectively. Finally, A-line service to/from the Rockaways, specifically Far Rockaway, will be rerouted to Rockaway Park. Shuttle buses will replace service along the Far Rockaway stretch of the line.
As I mentioned before and I’m sure you’re probably aware of now, the L-line has been severely hampered by a massive signal failure along the Canarsie line in Brooklyn. The MTA has been working on fixing this problem since it appeared yesterday evening. As I don’t have any information as to when regular service will resume, the current service pattern (of this writing) of limited service between 8 Av & Myrtle Av and Broadway Junction and Canarsie with shuttle buses connecting the two segments is not on the map. I advise all readers to check the MTA’s website for updates on this (and all other emergency service alerts), but that should be a given around here.
The map has everything else. Have a nice weekend everyone.
