Weekend of Aug. 16th

Good evening everyone. It’s another busy weekend on the rails. 1 train service is suspended north of 96 St. Shuttle buses are running along Broadway and St. Nicholas Av as a replacement. In a bit of good news, the 5 is finally running into Manhattan again after so many weekends of shuttle-only service. The bad news, however, is that the line is being truncated to E 180 St northbound. Wrapping up the service suspensions, there are no A trains running to/from Lefferts Blvd. Trains instead run to Howard Beach. On the subject of rerouted trains, downtown F trains are running via 53rd Street, and uptown trains run via the Cranberry tubes.

There are also several instances of express and local runs scattered about. The conga line once again heads to Queens Blvd as both E and F trains run local in both directions. On the 6-line, downtown trains are running express through Parkchester while uptown trains bypass local stops between Hunts Point Av and Parkchester. Downtown A and D trains are running local along Central Park West. Finally, uptown C trains are running express from Canal St to Columbus Circle to allow for the aforementioned F reroute.
