Good evening. As we enter into a new year, we say goodbye to the weekends of relatively light service disruptions. This weekend marks the beginning of a couple of major month-long service changes. The biggest one affects service on the C, F and G lines. F trains will replace normal service on the C-line, which is cut back to 2 Avenue, while G trains are extended to Coney Island in lieu of normal F service. We haven’t seen this service change since the Jay St/Lawrence St transfer was completed a few years ago. We also see the return of the Fix and Fortify closures. For the entire month, E trains will run via the F-line between W 4 Street and Roosevelt Av.
On the subject of Fix and Fortify, service along the 1 and 4 lines will be suspended intermittently due to work at South Ferry and in the Joralemon St tunnels respectively, this weekend being one of them.
Moving on to the other service disruptions, 5 trains will only run between E 180 Street and Grand Central during the daytime and evening hours. 3 train service will be suspended between Utica Av and New Lots Av with shuttle buses replacing the trains. There are also a couple of reroutes to contend with, including one that has the Queens-bound F trains running over the C-line between Jay St and W 4 Street.
Also, keep in mind that there will be no Q train service between 57 Street and 96 Street during overnight hours until Monday.
Enjoy the weekend.
