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.
