New Subway Track Maintenance Schedule to Reduce Weekend Madness

Our weekly post on planned weekend subway service changes may be shorter starting in January. According to NY1, the MTA will have more track maintenance work done late at night–10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.–on weeknights, rather than on weekends. This means that service on the affected portions of particular lines will be suspended in both directions Monday through Friday nights for single week stretches. The first such planned suspension will mean no 4 or 5 service (and none on the 6 local in Manhattan) between Grand Central and Atlantic Avenue from Monday, January 9 through Friday, January 13. The 2 and 3 (and the 1 local in Manhattan) won’t run between 34th Street-Penn Station and Atlantic Avenue during those hours February 13th through 17th. The B. D, F, and M trains won’t run between West 4th and 59th streets in Manhattan late at night from February 20th through the 24th. Finally, from March 12th through 16th, the A and C (and the E in Manhattan) won’t be running during the affected hours between Jay Street-Metro Tech and 59th Street in Manhattan. More such weeknight suspensions presumably will be scheduled for later dates.

    Claude – this is a great round-up of coming inconveniences! Thank you. I will for certain forget all of this as walk to the #1, #2, #4 and #5 stops in January and February, so could you please post it all again next year? Who knows; by then, the MTA could change their minds and decide to do repairs over lunch-time.

    Bette: I will post reminders. At my age, I need them.
