Well, we’ve reached the midway point of summer and it’s actually starting to feel like it. To prevent people from standing on sweltering platforms waiting for trains that aren’t coming, you’ll want to pay attention to this week’s service disruptions. First off, the 5 is running again. Don’t celebrate because it’s still split with no service between E 180 Street and 3 Avenue. The 2 trains are the alternate mode of service for most of the suspension. However, there are no 2 trains running from 3 Avenue to 96 Street. Because of that Lenox Ave suspension, 3 trains are not running at all this weekend. 4 trains are picking up the slack in Brooklyn, running local to New Lots Av.
Speaking of partial line suspensions, there are no J and M trains running between Brooklyn and Manhattan during the daytime hours. M service is cut back to Myrtle Av-Broadway while J trains are not running past Hewes St. Shuttle buses are only bridging the gap between Hewes St and Essex St, so expect heavier crowds on the Lexington Ave line.
Rounding out this weekend’s service changes, Coney Island-bound D trains are running on the Sea Beach line again. Also, Brooklyn-bound N and Q trains are running on the R-line between Canal St and DeKalb Av. Be mindful of the ever-present express runs scattered about.
Enjoy the weekend and stay cool.
