Yesterday afternoon, MTA New York City Transit announced that the M86 maybe subject to overnight detours. Here are the complete details via the press release I received:
MTA New York City Transit announced that the M86 bus route may be subject to diversions through Central Park during the last two weeks of July due to a city construction project. The New York City Dept. of Design and Construction has announced that the 86th Street Central Park transverse will be subject to closure in order to facilitate roadway construction activity from Monday, July 18th to Saturday, July 30th, from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. These detours will only happen as needed when NYC DDC notifies Transit that the 86th Street transverse is closed.
When the transverse closure is in place, the westbound M86 will take the regular route to 5th Avenue, then south to 79th Street, west on the 79th Street transverse to Central Park West, north on CPW to 86th Street and resume the regular route on 86th Street.
The eastbound M86 will take the regular route to Central Park West, then north on CPW to 96th Street, east on the 96th Street transverse to 5th Avenue, south on 5th Avenue to 84th Street, east on 84th Street and continue on the regular route.
