Normally, I would have updated the “Service Diversions” page with the latest scheduled diversions for the upcoming weekend & following week. However before I could even do that, the MTA announced that the scheduled diversions have been canceled due to the upcoming snow storm. Here are the complete details including the 2 closures that remain in play:
Due to the impending snow storm, all weekend work previously scheduled for Friday, December 18 through Monday, December 21 has been cancelled. Therefore, the ACDE and S (Rockaway Shuttle) will operate normally.
As a reminder, the Coney Island-bound Q platforms at Avenue H, Avenue M, Avenue U and Neck Road remain closed at all times until 2010. Also, Queens-bound service on the RW (and N during the late night hours) is restored at the Cortlandt Street station.
In addition, New York City Transit’s Nostalgia Shoppers’ Special will not operate this Sunday due to the cold weather operating plan in place in the subway system. However, weather permitting, the vintage train is scheduled to return to service next Sunday, December 27th.
As a reminder, these closures are still in force:
At all times until January 18, 2010, the Far Rockaway-bound platforms at Beach 67th, Beach 44th, and Beach 25th are closed for rehabilitation.
At all times until December 21, 2009, the Broad Channel-bound platforms at Beach 105th and Beach 90th Streets are closed for rehabilitation.
If at all possible, stay home during the storm. If you must travel, please avoid driving & stick with mass transit. I wish everyone the best possible travel in these conditions & complete safety.
