I have just updated the “Service Diversions” page with the latest planned work for the upcoming weekend, next week & beyond in some cases.
Riders of the should be warned that service will once again be split into 2 sections with 24 minute intervals on the latter half of the line due to the Canarsie fencing upgrade. Full details on that project can be found here.
For those interested in what the train diversion involving a “deep well” is, here is an explanation courtesy of the MTA diversions press release:
The deep well facilities pump out ground water, keeping water levels below the subway structure in order to prevent flooding. The wells vary in depth from about 60 ft. to 85 ft. below the sidewalk. This weekend’s work involves upgrading the currently outdated, individual control systems for six deep well facilities in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn along the G line. The installation of fiber optic cables routed to each well will connect them to one another and to the NYCT network to allow for a more efficient ground water control operation in the section of the G line that they serve.
I suggest printing out a copy before heading to your destination. If you have an internet capable handheld device, you can use it to access the mobile version of this site.
While out traveling, if I notice or hear any changes, I will update them on the twitter feed so don’t forget to follow @TransitBlogger today which you can do by clicking the button in the sidebar.
Stay safe & enjoy the first official weekend of fall.
