Good evening. Well, another month draws to a close, but that means little when it comes to subway service disruptions. This week marks the beginning of a multi-weekend shutdown of most of the Brighton line (and the Q with it). For the next few weeks, Q trains will only run between Kings Highway and Stillwell Av, while N and R trains and shuttle buses carry the rest of the line. There’s also a suspension of service along the Williamsburg Bridge for the next few weeks. J train service will only run as far as Hewes St and the M will be reduced to a shuttle between Metropolitan Av and Myrtle Av.
With that out of the way, let’s get to the other service changes in place this weekend. First, A train service will be suspended between Euclid Av and Lefferts Blvd. Finally, there will be no 4 trains running in Brooklyn this weekend. Moving from the full suspensions, there are a couple of major reroutes in effect as well. Brooklyn-bound F trains are desperately trying to be E trains in Manhattan, bunking with the E from Roosevelt Av to W 4 Street. Sticking with the F, Queens Blvd as a whole is messed up with all Manhattan-bound service running local and Jamaica- and Forest Hills-bound trains running express.
As per usual, there are a few other express runs scattered about. The map has the details on those, along with the rest of this weekend’s service changes.
Enjoy the weekend.
