This weekend it’s mostly same-old same-old, with a couple of twists. Once again, no service in either direction on the 4/5 line at Borough Hall. The 2 and 3 will be running normally in both directions there and at Clark Street, and the 3 will be extended to New Lots for the convenience of those traveling into Brooklyn. Once again, the Manhattan bound F will be diverted to the A/C line between Jay Street and West 4th, so there will be no Manhattan bound service at York Street (but more than usual at High Street). To get to East Broadway, Delancey, 2nd Avenue, or Broadway-Lafayette, take an A, C, or F to West 4th and change there for an A, C, or F back to the skipped stop. You read that right: unlike last week, Brooklyn bound A and C trains will be re-routed to the F line between West 4th and Jay, so there will be no service from Manhattan to High Street. North Heights residents are probably better off taking the 2 or 3 to Clark. Service on the R and (late night) N at Court Street will be normal in both directions.
The following week, Fast Track disruptions will be limited to the A/C line. Between 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. Monday to Friday, these trains will be re-routed in both directions over the F line between Jay and 34th Street-Herald Square (so no service in either direction at High Street), and over the D line between 34th and 59th Street-Columbus Circle. E trains in Manhattan will also be following this route between 2nd Avenue on the F line and 59th. Just like last week, Manhattan bound N trains, which normally replace the R after midnight, will be diverted over the Manhattan Bridge and therefore not stopping at Court Street, but the Q will provide alternative service at Court, and you can change from the Q to the N at Canal Street.
