Service shut downs that were set to begin on the No. 7 train this weekend have been cancelled because of an impending winter storm, the MTA said.
In order to allocate resources for the winter storm that is expected to hit this weekend, some of the MTA’s scheduled weekend subway work, including planned suspensions on the No. 7 train in Long Island City, has been canceled, the transit agency said.
The following MTA subway service changes will still take effect this weekend:
At all times until May 2014, 6 trains skip Middletown Road and Castle Hill Avenue in both directions due to station renewal work.
From 11:15 p.m. Friday, February 28, to 5:00 a.m. Monday, March 3, Coney Island-bound F trains are rerouted on the M line from Roosevelt Av to 47-50 Sts Rock Ctr due to station work at Lexington Av-63 St for Second Avenue Subway construction.
From 11:30 p.m. Friday, February 28 to 5:00 a.m. Monday, March 1, L trains are not running between 8 Av and Myrtle-Wyckoff Avs due to track tie renewal north of 3 Av. L service operates between Rockaway Pkwy and Myrtle-Wyckoff Avs. Use AFJM trains, M14, and free shuttle buses.
From 6:00 a.m. Saturday, March 1, to 12:50 a.m. Sunday, March 2, and from 8:00 a.m. to 11:45 p.m. Sunday, March 2, M service is extended to 57 St to replace L service that is partially suspended due to track tie renewal north of 3 Av.
At all times until early summer 2014, Coney Island-bound Q trains skip Parkside Av, Beverley Rd, and Cortelyou Rd due to painting and concrete repair work on station platforms at Parkside Av, Beverley Rd, and Cortelyou Rd.
N/ R (Montague Tubes Closed)
At all times until October 2014, there are no N or R trains running between Court Street in Brooklyn and Whitehall Street in Manhattan. Late night N and weekend R service are rerouted over the Manhattan Bridge.
No N or R trains in either direction at Jay Street-MetroTech, Court Street, Whitehall Street, Rector Street, Cortlandt Street and City Hall.
