As we head into the holiday season, you’ll notice that construction-related subway diversions will be on the light side. This weekend, we only have to contend with two major diversions. The first is the ongoing project at Coney Island, which has F and Q trains terminating at Avenue X and Brighton Beach respectively. The other one deals with the Lexington Ave line. There will be no service south of the Brooklyn Bridge, while 5 trains aren’t running past Grand Central. Late night 3 train service will be extended to New Lots Av as a replacement for lost 4 service.
The rest of this weekend’s diversions are all one-directional express runs. All in all, this is a pretty quiet weekend. Even though you likely won’t need it, the map is available for a visual.
Enjoy the rest of your Thanksgiving weekend.
This weekend marks the beginning of a ten-day project, which will eliminate through service on the Brighton and Culver lines to Coney Island. Starting late tonight and continuing through Monday, December 1, shuttle buses will replace trains between Coney Island and either Avenue X or Brighton Beach on the F and Q lines respectively.
Moving on to the other service disruptions in place, all of the service changes on the numbered lines that were in effect last week are in effect this weekend. That means the following: 4 and 5 extended to Brooklyn via local, 2 and 3 cut back to Manhattan only, no 7 trains west of Queensboro Plaza. The only other major service change in effect will be on the A and C lines. Manhattan-bound trains will run via the Rutgers tubes this weekend, making F-line stops between Jay St and W 4 St. The usual express and local runs are still in place. The map has the details.
Enjoy the weekend.
So, that cold front finally made its way to New York. And it’s not getting any better this weekend, so unless you like waiting on freezing platforms for trains that aren’t running, you might want to take a look at this weekend’s map. The biggest service changes in effect this weekend take place on the numbered lines. First off, there is no direct 7th Avenue-Brooklyn service, which means the 4 and 5 are picking up the slack in Brooklyn. It also means the 2 is being truncated to E 180 St while the 5 is extended to Wakefield. We’ve also got shutdowns on the Dyre Ave (anyone surprised?) and west end of the Flushing (see previous) lines. Finally, there is a daytime-only shutdown of service across the Williamsburg Bridge, so buses are replacing trains between Hewes and Essex Sts.
Wrapping up the service changes, Coney Island-bound D trains are running on the N-line south of 36 St in Brooklyn. Queens-bound F trains are once again running via 53rd Street. There are several express runs scattered about, specifically on the 6 and D in the Bronx, as well as the C in Manhattan to name a few. Check out the map for the details and do try to stay warm out there.
Overall, it’s relatively light weekend for service disruptions, but there are a few major service interruptions in place. It’s another weekend of truncated service on the 1 and 5 lines. The former is terminating at 96 St while the latter is not running past E 180 Street. There’s also no service on the 7-line west of Queensboro Plaza and all A trains are running towards the Rockaways branch with shuttle buses running to Lefferts Blvd.
Rounding up the list of service reroutes, Coney Island-bound D trains are running over the Sea Beach line. Speaking of the N, both it and the D trains are running local in Brooklyn. A few more express runs are sprinkled about. Check the map for those.
Enjoy the weekend.
