Good evening. I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving holiday yesterday; I know I did. While everyone spends their weekend either sleeping off their food comas or looking for great deals, there is no rest for the MTA subway. While it is a lighter weekend in terms of service disruptions, there are a few headaches riders will have to contend with. Namely, the 5 trains are not running between E 180 Street and Dyre Av.
It’s also slow-going on several of the subway lines because of local- or express-related reroutes. For instance, if you’re using the F trains, Manhattan-bound trains from Jamaica are running local from 71 Avenue to Roosevelt Av, whereas Queens-bound trains will bypass 23 Street and 14 Street. That’s on top of the Brooklyn-bound reroute via 53rd Street. Among the other express runs, Brooklyn-bound C trains will bypass all local stops between 168 Street and Columbus Circle, while Manhattan-bound R trains run express along 4th Avenue. On the flip-side, Brooklyn-bound service on the Lexington Ave line is local only for most of the line.

Enjoy the weekend.
