Weekend of Aug. 19th

08.18Good evening. This is going to be a very messy weekend, especially if you’re trying to get around midtown. E and F trains are doing the old switcheroo with a new twist. E trains are running on the F-line between Roosevelt Av and 34 St-Herald Sq, the last stop. F trains are running along the E-line in both directions with a few caveats. Brooklyn-bound trains will run from Roosevelt Av to 42 Street on the E-line, then continue along the A line, running express, through Jay St. Queens-bound trains will run normally along 6th Avenue, but will be rerouted through the 53rd Street tunnel. Naturally, this is not the only service change in the area. Downtown A and C trains will run express between 59 St-Columbus Circle and Canal St. All downtown service on Broadway is express-only via the Manhattan Bridge. Finally, all service on the Lexington Ave line is local only from Grand Central to the Brooklyn Bridge.

There are also a couple of suspensions to contend with. First off, 2 and 5 trains are not running between E 180 Street and 241 Street. Also, continuing from previous weekends, N train service is suspended north of Queensboro Plaza. The rest of this weekend’s service changes are in the map linked below.

Enjoy the weekend.

Weekend of Aug. 12th

Good evening. This weekend, we have a few major suspensions in place. Once again, service along the Dyre Ave line is replaced by shuttle buses. J trains are not running beyond Crescent St while N train service is suspended north of Queensboro Plaza. Finally, G trains are not running between Hoyt-Schermerhorn Sts and Church Av. Also be mindful of several express runs, including those on the Broadway and Culver lines. One last thing: on Saturday, A and C trains will run on the F-line through the Rutgers tunnels.

Weekend of Aug. 4th

Manhtn Brg north track closure.PNGGood evening. As we enter a new month, we finally wrap up a few continuous service disruptions. This will be the last weekend for the work on the 7th Avenue, Pelham and Queens Blvd lines. That means, just one more weekend of suspensions on the 1, E and F lines and split service on the 6-line. Unfortunately, those are not the only service changes to contend with this weekend. As you’re all probably aware, Sea Beach rehabilitation work has begun on the Coney Island-bound platforms, which will continue through next year. Other service changes include the ever-present suspension of 5 2 train service between E 180 Street and Dyre Av, along with the shutdown of the D-line between Broadway-Lafayette St and Atlantic Av. In regards to the latter, D trains will be rerouted over the C-line from Columbus Circle to W 4 Street. As a side note, be mindful of express and local runs to compensate for the rerouted D trains.

Weekend of July 28th

Sea Beach shuttle busesGood evening. Ongoing work on the 1, 6, E, F and R lines continue. 1 trains are not running past 137 Street, 6 train service is split at 125 Street, and work on Queens Blvd will truncate the E & F and R trains to Forest Hills and Queens Plaza respectively. It is also yet another weekend where Dyre Ave service is suspended. This weekend also marks the beginning of the second phase of Sea Beach renovations, which will continue through next Summer. In preparation, N trains will run over the D-line in both directions between 36 Street and Stillwell Av, with shuttle buses providing alternate service.

Weekend of July 22nd

07.22Good evening. This is going to be a busy weekend for service changes and disruptions. To start, ongoing work on the Queens Blvd line will continue, with E and F trains terminating at 71 Avenue, along with the suspension of R train service east of Queens Plaza. Another recurring suspension is along the Dyre Ave. All uptown 2 trains will terminate at E 180 Street with shuttle buses replacing normal service through Dyre Av. Adding to these service changes, we have suspensions in place on the 1, D and R lines in various locations. 1 trains are not running between 137 St-City College and Van Cortlandt Park. D train service is split, with no trains running between Broadway-Lafayette St and Atlantic Av. As usual, shuttle buses will run to Grand St and the Brooklyn-D will run express on 4th Avenue the entire weekend. Finally, along with the aforementioned Queens suspension, R trains will also not run between 36 St-4 Av and 95 Street. To accommodate these disruptions, A and C trains will run express along 8th Avenue proper while E and F trains will make all stops to Forest Hills.

Weekend of July 15th

Good afternoon. If you remember the service changes in effect two weeks ago, you’re in good shape for this weekend. Once again, 5 train service is suspended between 86 Street and 241 Street. 2 trains will run to Wakefield this weekend while shuttle buses replace service along the Dyre Ave line.

Other major service changes include the ongoing suspension of all Queens Blvd service east of 71 Avenue and the reroute of A and C trains over the F-line between W 4 Street and Jay St.

Saturday Edit: The Brighton service change has been cancelled for this weekend. The map has been updated to reflect this change.

Weekend of July 8th

Good evening. This weekend marks the beginning of a month-long suspension of service on the Queens Blvd line east of Forest Hills. Track and switch replacement in the area of 75 Avenue is the cause of this massive disruption. Shuttle buses will replace all train service between 71 Avenue and either Jamaica Center or 179 Street. Also, R train service will be suspended between Queens Plaza and 71 Avenue, with E and F local trains replacing normal service.

Besides that major disruption, it’s an otherwise relatively light weekend. A and C trains are once again running on the F-line through the Rutgers tunnels. 5 train service is split at E 180 Street with through service running to/from Dyre Av.
