Weekend of March 23rd

Since I’m a bit pressed for time at the moment, let’s run through this shall we? First off, this is the last weekend of the continuous 7 line shutdowns between Queensboro Plaza and Times Sq. That doesn’t mean the line won’t be truncated periodically in the future. Also this weekend, in preparation of the old South Ferry station reopening next month, the 1 is truncated to 14 St with the 2 and 3 running local south of 34 St-Penn Station. The 2 is once again split between the Bronx and Manhattan, which means the 5 is also split. Rounding out the subway short-turns, the J is terminating at Crescent St this weekend as well.

There are also several reroutes and express runs on various lines in Manhattan and the R in Queens. The map has all the details. Also, reminding everyone, next week is the Lexington Avenue FASTRACK, which shuts down all local stations between 125 St and Grand Central. Plan accordingly.


Weekend of March 16

Hey, what do you know? I actually got this out on Friday this time. Hooray for me.

This weekend is a relatively light one because of the St. Patrick’s Day parade tomorrow. Only the 7, F and Q service changes in Manhattan go into effect either late this evening or early tomorrow. The express runs on the downtown 4 & 6 and N & R start late Saturday night. The only other major service change is on the J line in Brooklyn and Queens, where buses replace trains between Crescent St and Jamaica-Van Wyck Expwy on the E line. The map has everything plotted out. Reminder: if there is no start/end time on the service change boxes, they begin at midnight tonight and end at 5 AM Monday.


Weekend of March 9

Late again. Let’s just jump right into this. It’s the last weekend for the Lenox Avenue shutdown, the short turns of the northbound 1 trains and the express runs of the downtown 6 trains in Manhattan. The 7 is still truncated to Queensboro Plaza (as it will be through the end of the month). Also, Central Av on the M line will be closed starting this weekend through August. Use the B54 bus for alternate service. Downtown N and R trains run express in Manhattan; downtown 4 and 5 trains run local south of Grand Central. For more service changes in place this weekend, consult the map below. Enjoy the weekend; it’s supposed to be nice weather-wise.


Weekend of Mar 2

Good evening folks. Hope you had a good week. First off, a reminder that fares on the buses and subways will go up this Sunday. Alright, with that out of the way, let’s jump into this weekend’s service disruptions. Continuing from last week are the shutdowns of the Lenox Avenue line as well as the ever-ongoing one for the 7 line west of Queensboro Plaza. We also have the entire M line replaced by shuttle buses for the weekend. C and D trains are flip-flopped again with uptown C trains running express and uptown D trains run via the 8th Avenue local. Also rounding out this weekend’s disruptions are several more express runs on Broadway, Lexington Avenue and Queens Blvd. The map as always has all the details. Enjoy your weekend.
