Weekend of Feb. 21st

Hello folks. This week we have a proper mess on the rails. First off, the Joralemon tubes, which carry the 4 trains between Manhattan and Brooklyn, are closed off this weekend. That means there will be no 4 trains running past the Brooklyn Bridge. Also, 5 trains will not be running south of Grand Central. Overnights, 3 train service will be extended to Brooklyn to compensate. Secondly, we have a not-FASTRACK at Coney Island. I say “not-FASTRACK” because while it’s not listed as a FASTRACK service change, it follows the same service plan in place for the previous ones. There’s also another weekend where Lefferts Blvd-bound A trains are being replaced by shuttle buses. Finally, this is the final weekend in which L trains are not running between Union Square and 8th Ave. This time, I’m sure.

In terms of other service changes, the usual 8th Ave one-way express run gets a twist. Instead of having all three lines run on the same track, bypassing the local stops, C-trains will run via 6th Ave between Jay St and 59 St-Columbus Circle. Speaking of express runs, there are some in place along the Queens Blvd, Culver and Brighton lines.

Check out the map, linked below, for the details. Enjoy the weekend.
