Alright folks, let’s keep this brief because I’m in a bit of a rush. The 7 still isn’t running west of Queensboro Plaza; the 5 is running, but not south of East 180th Street, so we’re basically just swapping the shuttle. Uptown C & D trains are flip-flopped along Central Park West, uptown N & R trains are running express in Manhattan and the 4 is running local for a good chunk of the Lexington Avenue trunk line. If you have to use the N in Brooklyn, be advised that trains are running on the D line making express stops, towards Coney Island on Saturday, from Coney Island Sunday. The map has all the details. Enjoy the weekend.
Well it’s Friday again and damn is it a cold one or what? Let’s jump right into it, shall we? First off, let’s start with some post-Sandy updates. First and foremost, there has been some news about South Ferry that has come out recently and unfortunately, it doesn’t look good. The MTA is projecting a three-year closure of the new station because of the severity of the damage sustained from the surging salt water. I hope that timetable can be improved, but it doesn’t look good. Secondly, while this doesn’t affect the weekend service, the weekday service for the H Rockaways shuttle will change starting Monday. Instead of service ending after midnight each night, that will only happen on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Mondays, service will begin between 4 & 4:30 AM and end around 9:30 PM. Tuesdays through Thursdays, service will begin around 5 AM. Trains will stop running the same time as it will on Mondays.
With that out of the way, let’s get to this weekend’s disruptions. Highlighting the service changes for the week are the lack of 5 train service at all, no 7 trains running west of Queensboro Plaza and the shutdown of the Livonia line again. And that’s not even half of the disruptions. Queens-bound F trains are running express in Brooklyn and via 53rd Street in Manhattan. There are no G trains running south of Hoyt-Schermerhorn. Bronx-bound 4 trains are running express between 125 St and Burnside Av. The map below has all the details, as well as some service changes not listed above.
TGIF folks. But that’s not good news if you have to use the subway this weekend. The work on the numbered lines that happened last weekend continues through this one. Adding on to that is the express run of the F between both Jay St & Church Av and Kings Hwy & Neptune Av. Since that work is taking place on the Culver line, the G has been cut back (and split) to Hoyt-Schermerhorn. Also, watch out for the local Q trains in Manhattan and the split J service. The map is linked below. Enjoy the weekend.
Well, another year bites the dust. I’m still late with putting these maps online. I may have to start putting them up on Thursday instead of intending (and failing) to put them up on Friday. We’ll see how that goes. Anyhow, here are the highlights of this weekend’s service changes. Once again, the IRT is messed up, especially in the outer boroughs. The 5 isn’t running at all, the 7 isn’t running into/out of Manhattan and there is no service on the Livonia Avenue line in Brooklyn. Also, expect longer waits on the 1 north of 137 St due to work on the line. The map showing all diversions in place this weekend is posted below. Enjoy the weekend and try to stay warm.
