Weekend of Aug. 20th

Good afternoon everyone. After last weekend’s relatively light list of service disruptions, we return to what passes for normality with a whole slew of major disruptions and diversions. First off, Fix and Fortify work moves to the Clark St tunnels. That means there will not any 2 or 3 trains running between Manhattan and Brooklyn this weekend. Service in Brooklyn will be provided by 4 and 5 local trains. Also to balance out the MTA internal workload, 2 and 5 trains are switching their northern terminals as well. 5 trains will run 241 St in lieu of the 2 trains, which are unfortunately terminating at E 180 Street due to track work along the Dyre Ave line.

Of course, that’s only one major disruption. D train service is suspended between Herald Square and the Barclays Center. There are no A trains running north of 168 Street. Finally, there are no L trains running between Myrtle-Wyckoff Avs and Rockaway Pkwy.

Moving away from the partial line suspensions, there are still a few major diversions to contend with as well. As usual, E trains are running via 63rd Street and 6th Avenue due to more Fix and Fortify work. Also, for what feels like the millionth time, all service along Queens Blvd is local-only. Finally, due to the aforementioned suspension of D train service, N trains will run local in Brooklyn all weekend.

Check out the map for a complete list of service changes.

Weekend of Aug. 13th

Good evening. This weekend will be more manageable than the previous few. That’s a good thing because this weekend will be a scorcher and I’m sure you don’t want to add a bunch of reroutes to an already uncomfortable trip. With that said, there are a few service disruptions to contend with. Once again, the 5 train is running between E 180 Street and Dyre Av, but really, that shouldn’t be all that new anymore. Also, L trains are not running along part of the Canarsie line. Fortunately, the closed off section is only between Broadway Junction and Rockaway Pkwy.

There are only a few more service reroutes in place. Brooklyn-bound F trains are running via the E-line between Roosevelt Av and Rockefeller Center. Also, all Broadway trains are running across the Manhattan Bridge, which means there will be no N or R trains in Lower Manhattan or Downtown Brooklyn.

Check out the map for the details.

Weekend of Aug. 6th

Good evening. It’s more of the same with a few more added for for good measure. 2 train service is still split at E 180 Street. A, C and E trains are rerouted due to Sandy recovery work. 1 and 3 train service is truncated to 14 Street and Utica Av respectively. Speaking of truncations, 4 train service is still not running to Brooklyn, but they are running express to Bowling Green.

Weekend of July 30th

Good evening. This weekend’s subway disruptions will not be as bad as they were last weekend. There are still a few ongoing service changes that continue to carry over. 2 train service is still split at E 180 Street with mainline service running to/from Dyre Av. 4 trains are still not running into Brooklyn. Finally, Fix and Fortify work affects service on the A, C and E lines.

The other major service change in place this weekend is along the Queens Blvd line. All Queens-bound service is express-only, while all Manhattan-bound trains will run local through the entire line. For the full list of service changes, check out the map below.

Weekend of July 23rd

Good evening. With this weekend set to be quite a scorcher, you do not want to wait on the platform for a train that’s not running. Once again, Fix & Fortify work will affect service on the 4, 5, A, C, and E lines. The 4 and 5 will be cut back to Brooklyn Bridge and Grand Central respectively, with the former running local throughout the entire route. A and C trains are rerouted via the Rutgers tunnels while E trains are running on the F-line between Roosevelt Av and W 4 Street.

There are a few other service disruptions to contend with as well. 3 train service is suspended between Utica Av and New Lots Av. On the A-line, there is no service on the Lefferts branch, with trains rerouted to Rockaway Park. All service along Queens Blvd is local only. There is also a reduction in service on the 6-line between 3 Avenue and Pelham Bay Park.

For the full list of this weekend’s service changes, check out the map, which is correct this time.

Weekend of July 9th

Good evening. This weekend, the locals reign supreme. 4 and 5 trains are running local throughout Manhattan. E and F trains are also running local between 71 Avenue and either Queens Plaza or 21 St-Queensbridge.

There is also a slew of other service changes to contend with. 1 trains are once again suspended between 14 Street and South Ferry. 2 and 3 local trains replace normal service through Chambers St while shuttle buses run the rest of the way down to South Ferry. There is no 5 train service between E 180 Street and Dyre Av. A and C trains are cut back to 168 Street and 145 Street respectively. Speaking of the A and C lines, both are running via the F-line between W 4 Street and Jay St.
