Good afternoon everyone. You might want to pay close attention to this week’s map because we have several major disruptions in place this weekend. Let’s take it in order of route, shall we. There will be no 2 or 5 train service running between E 180 Street and 3 Avenue. Actually, there will be no 5 trains south of E 180 Street. Express and local shuttle buses will provide alternate service in the Bronx. In Brooklyn, shuttle buses will replace 3 and 4 trains between Utica Av and New Lots Av. Speaking of Brooklyn, there will also be a suspension of J and M train service across the Williamsburg Bridge during the daytime hours. Finally, and yes, I’m aware I messed up the order, we get to the biggest service change of the weekend. D train service is completely screwed up this weekend. Trains will run in two sections: the first running local along 8th Ave to 2 Avenue on the F-line, and the second between Stillwell Av and Whitehall St via the R-line.
There are also a few other diversions in place as well. Manhattan-bound F trains are running via 53rd St again and Manhattan-bound N trains are running on the D-line. Check out the map for the details.
PS, Keep in mind that starting this Monday, the Manhattan-bound platforms at Ditmas Av and Avenue X will be closed for renovations.
Enjoy the weekend.
SATURDAY EDIT: The map has been updated to include the express shuttle bus stop at Hunts Point Av on the 6-line.
