Good evening folks. Hope you had a good week. First off, let’s start with the good news. After many delays, Smith-9 Sts has finally reopened this morning as of this post. The bad news: due to construction work unrelated to the Culver Viaduct project, G service is truncated to Hoyt-Schermerhorn (and split at Bedford-Nostrand Avs). Also, as will probably be the norm for the foreseeable future, the 1 line is cut back to 14 St with shuttle buses running between Chambers St and South Ferry. Downtown F trains are running via the Cranberry Tubes, which means the C trains are not stopping at 50th, 23rd or Spring Sts so as to not create a conga line on the 8th Avenue local tracks. Finally, this is the last weekend of the Fort Washington shutdown of the A line between 168 St and 207 St.
The map as usual has all the details. Enjoy the weekend. It looks like it’s shaping up to be a good one.
PS. If anyone is planning on being out late tonight, the MetroCard machines will only take cash between 2 and 5 AM, so you might want to plan ahead on that one.
SUNDAY EDIT: G train service is running to Church Av. Northbound, alternating trains are turning at Bedford-Nostrand Avs. New map below.
