Weekend of Dec. 27th

Good afternoon. I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays. With Christmas over with, there are a few more service changes in place than previous weekends this month. It’s not the mess that it’s going to be in the coming weeks, not by a long shot. There are a few service suspensions to contend with though. There is no service on the Lexington Ave line south of the Brooklyn Bridge. Late nights, 3 trains will be extended to New Lots Av to make up for the loss of 4 trains. Also because of this service change, 5 trains will only run as a shuttle between Dyre Av and E 180 St all weekend. The other major service disruption in place is at Coney Island. FasTrack has once again hit the D and N trains at the Coney Island terminal. Southbound D and N trains will terminate at Bay Pkwy and Gravesend-86 St respectively. Since this is a FasTrack-related suspension, you’ll have to use the local buses in the area as shuttle buses will not be provided.

There are a couple of express runs in place, namely on Coney Island-bound Q trains and Forest Hills/Jamaica-bound E, F, and R trains. Check out the map for the details.

Saturday EDIT: Q trains are running normally on the Brighton line this weekend. The map linked above has been updated to reflect this change.

Weekend of December 20th

For the final weekend before Christmas, we have just about the same service disruptions in place this weekend as we did last weekend. N and R trains are running across the Bridge, half of the G trains are running only as far north as Bedford-Nostrand Avs and the same express runs in place last weekend remain in effect this weekend. Even if you probably don’t need it, the map has the details.

Weekend of December 13th

Good afternoon everyone. This weekend is slightly busier than last, but still relatively easy to deal with overall. Due to last night’s fire adjacent to the Jamaica line at Van Siclen Av, shuttle buses are replacing J train service between Crescent St and Broadway Junction. Other than that, once again, N and R trains are running across the Bridge this weekend. Finally, there is no A train service to/from Lefferts Blvd. Shuttle buses are running between 80 St and Lefferts Blvd.

There are also a few express runs in place as well, along the Brighton line in Brooklyn and the Concourse and White Plains Rd lines in the Bronx. Click on the link for the map.

Weekend of Dec. 6th

Well, we’ve reached the last month of the year. And as I’ve mentioned last week, that means weekend work will be light for the most part. This weekend, the only major diversion in place is along the Broadway line in Lower Manhattan. In shades of the long-term closure of the Montague tubes earlier this year, N and R trains are once again running across the Manhattan Bridge all weekend. This diversion will be in place for the next few weekends this month, so keep that in mind.

Other than that, there are a few express runs. Check out the map for the details.

Enjoy the weekend.

P.S. As a reminder, Q trains will be running local in Manhattan during the overnight hours starting this Sunday.
