Good evening folks. Before we delve into this weekend’s service changes, I just want to remind everyone, as if you don’t already know, that the new 7-line station at the Hudson Yards/Javits Center will open Sunday afternoon.
With that out of the way, let’s get to this weekend’s mess. Luckily, the earlier derailment on the G-line has been cleared up, so that’s one less thing to deal with. However, there are still several major disruptions in place. 1 trains still won’t run past 14 Street, the 5 is still operating only as the Dyre Ave shuttle and E/F trains will run local in Queens. Beyond that, there is no 3/4 train service between Utica Av and New Lots Av. There is also a suspension of F train service between Kings Hwy and Stillwell Av.
On the subject of reroutes, they’re “Fixing and Fortifying” the Cranberry tunnels, so A and C trains will run via the F-line in both directions between W 4 Street and Jay St. Also, Manhattan-bound D trains are running on the N-line from Coney Island to 36 Street. In another bit of good news, M train service is extended to Chambers St on the J-line, but that’s nothing new.

There are a couple of other things I’d like to remind everyone. First off, FASTRACK hits the Hillside Ave line next week. There will be no F trains running between Briarwood and 179 Street. Secondly, starting Monday, the elevators at the Simpson St station will be out of service until the middle of next year. Customers will have to use the Bx19 bus for connecting service.
I think that’s everything. Enjoy the weekend.
