This upcoming weekend & one in May will see the LIRR’s Far Rockaway line have schedule adjustments due to maintenance work. Here are the complete details:
On April 12-13, and on May 3-4, the Long Island Rail Road will perform waterproofing maintenance on a bridge that carries two tracks over 150th Street in Jamaica, Queens. As a result, Far Rockaway Branch train schedules are being adjusted by up to eight minutes.
Throughout both weekends, arrival and departure times at Atlantic Terminal, Brooklyn will not be affected. But arrival and departure times between Jamaica and Far Rockaway will be changed. Details are below.
Brooklyn-bound trains will depart Far Rockaway, Inwood, Lawrence, Cedarhurst, Woodmere, Hewlett, Gibson and Valley Stream stations up to eight minutes earlier than normal. These trains will be held at Jamaica for up to eight minutes and will arrive at Atlantic Terminal at their regularly scheduled time.
