Yesterday afternoon, I posted the latest planned service diversions for the weekend & beyond in some cases. While updating the files, I wondered if any or all of the work might get canceled due to the inclement weather that is heading our way. So I was not surprised to receive an e-mail with details on most work being canceled for the weekend. Here are the complete details courtesty of MTA NYC Transit:
Due to inclement weather all weekend subway work has been cancelled with the exception of the project on the 7 line which remains the same (see below).
From 11:30 p.m. Friday, February 5 to 5 a.m. Monday, February 8, there are no 7 trains between Times Square-42nd Street and Queensboro Plaza due to track panel installation on the Davis Street curve. The NQ and free shuttle buses provide alternate service. Note: 42nd Street Shuttle S runs overnight. Q trains are extended to/from Ditmars Blvd.
All other lines will operate according to the usual weekend schedule. Please note: At all times until Fall 2010, the Coney Island-bound Q platforms at Avenue H and Avenue M are closed for rehabilitation. At all times until December 2010, the Manhattan-bound Q platforms at Avenue U and Neck Road are closed for rehabilitation. At all times for approximately four months, the Manhattan-bound A platforms at Beach 25th and Beach 67th Streets are closed for rehabilitation
So keep this information in mind when traveling this weekend. Most importantly, stay safe out there & have a wonderful weekend!
