Good evening. This weekend will be hell on the rails. There is no other way to slice it. Unless you’re using the 7 or G-lines, the only lines unaffected by service diversions, you might want to pack a lot of patience. Either that or seek alternative methods of getting around.
Let’s sort out this mess, shall we? First off, 5 train service is once again completely suspended. While that is the only full line suspension, it doesn’t get much better. There are no 1 trains running south of 14 Street. 4 trains are terminating at the Brooklyn Bridge, running local in both directions through the entire line. Shuttle buses replace 3 train service east of Utica Av. Finally, and this is the big one, D trains are not running between 59 St-Columbus Circle and Coney Island.
Moving over to the other reroutes, Fix and Fortify work affects the A, C and E-lines again, with A and C trains running via Rutgers and the E via the 63rd Street tubes. As mentioned above, there is no D train service in Brooklyn. To compensate, N trains are running via the West End line in both directions with shuttle buses replacing normal Sea Beach service. Adding insult to injury, there are a several pesky express-only sections in place, including the full closure of the 103 Street station on the Lexington Ave line.
All in all, you’re going to want to pay close attention to this weekend’s map.
Enjoy the weekend.
