Upcoming L Line Service Diversion Information

Yesterday afternoon, MTA New York City Transit sent out a press release to highlight upcoming weekend service diversions on the L Train. Here are the complete details:

MTA New York City Transit announced that there will be several weekend diversions due to rail work, cable replacement, and work on the Communication-Based Train Control (CBTC) system on the Canarsie L Line from July through October. This weekend work usually begins at 12:01 a.m. on Saturdays and finishes at 5 a.m. on Mondays.

• On July 16-18, and August 27-29, free shuttle bus service will replace the L train between Lorimer Street and Broadway Junction due to rail work at Myrtle Avenue and Halsey Street.

• On Sept. 3-5, L trains will bypass 3rd Avenue in both directions due to third rail cable replacement. L trains will operate in two sections: Between Rockaway Parkway and Bedford Avenue and between Bedford Avenue and 14th Street-Union Square (every 16 minutes). M14 bus service and free overnight shuttle buses will replace the L between 14th Street-Union Square and 8th Avenue.

• On September 9-12, 17-19, and October 8-10, there will be no L train service between 8th Avenue and Broadway Junction due to work on and testing of the CBTC system. Shuttle buses, M trains, and M14 buses provide alternate service.
