Good afternoon. Well, the calendar says Spring, but the first half of the weekend will have you thinking it’s still Winter. With the expectation of a cold and damp Saturday, you don’t want to waste your time waiting for trains that aren’t running. Most of the recurring service changes from last month have ended, so that’s a good thing. However, work on the Myrtle Ave line does continue and will do so intermittently through June. For this weekend, there is no M train service between Myrtle Av and Metropolitan Av. Another big service disruption in place will affect service on the D and N lines. D trains are not running along their normal line past 59 St-Columbus Circle. In fact, the last stop will be 2 Avenue on the F-line after running local via the C-line between 59 Street and W 4 Street. To compensate for the loss of D train service in Brooklyn, N trains will run on the West End line in both directions with shuttle buses replacing normal N service.
Yet again, there is no 4 train service to/from Brooklyn. That persistent service change is also expected to wrap up in June. I would not celebrate yet as that will likely signal the start of suspensions on the 2 and 3 lines between Manhattan and Brooklyn. Wrapping up the service changes this weekend, E trains are running via 63rd Street and 6th Avenue. Finally, most Lexington Ave service is local-only, with only uptown 5 trains running express.
Enjoy the weekend.
