If you’re taking the subway this weekend, you should plan on your trip taking a little longer than usual.
A construction project at a switching complex in Sunnyside, Queens will cause service changes on the LIRR for the next three weeks.
The service changes, some of which will take effect late Friday night, will affect the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, A, C, F, G, J, M, Q and S lines.
There will be no service on the 7 line between Queensboro Plaza and Times Square from 11:45 p.m. on Friday through 5 a.m. Monday.
The changes this weekend are for the A,C, D, F, J, N and R lines and then starting Monday, there’ll be late night and overnight closures on major lines as part of the MTA’s FASTRACK program.
Trains on those lines will be shut down from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., suspending 6th Avenue service between 57th Street and West 4th Street in Manhattan in both directions from February 27 to March 2.
Planned work on the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, A, C, E, B, D, F, M, L, N, Q, R, S lines could make for a confusing commute for New Yorkers and tourists alike.
MTA officials said crews were doing track and signal work part of an $11 billion upgrade plan.
Over the weekend, the railroad’s $56 million upgrade project left a long trail of frustration.
After a weekend of delays and cancelled trains, it appears the Long Island Rail Road will be back on track to start the work week – but this won’t be the end to the ambitious upgrade work.
The LIRR, the nation’s oldest commuter railroad modernizing an aging infrastructure means fewer trains and longer delays this weekend.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is hoping to make your commute a little easier and less confusing.
