There are three planned service changes directly affecting traffic at local stations this weekend. From 12:01 a.m. Saturday to 5:00 a.m. Monday there will be no R or late night N trains from Manhattan to Court Street or Jay Street-Metro Tech, as these trains will be diverted over the Manhattan Bridge between Canal Street and DeKalb Avenue. If you’re coming from Canal or above, you can take the train to DeKalb and catch a Manhattan bound train from there back to Jay or Court. If you’re coming from below there, your best bet is the 2 or 3 to Clark Street or Borough Hall; this, the A or C may also be your best choice above Canal. Fans of the G train should know that from 12:01 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. Saturday only it won’t be running between Hoyt-Schermerhorn and Church Avenue. F trains from Jay Street will be making all G stops between Bergen Street and Church. As has been going on since Tuesday and will continue through next Tuesday, there will be no 3 service in either direction between 12:30 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. daily, but 2 trains will be running as normal.
Just like last weekend, 3 trains won’t be running between Franklin and New Lots avenues from 6:00 a.m. Saturday to 10:00 p.m. Sunday. 4 trains will provide alternate service between Franklin and Utica avenues, and free shuttle buses will cover stops from Utica to New Lots. In Manhattan, uptown C trains will be running express above Canal Street. For Spring Street, change to the E at Canal. For local stops above 14th Street, change there to the D, which will be running local on the A/C line (or, as an alternative for 23rd or 50th streets, take the E from 14th).
The following week, Brooklyn bound A trains will be skipping 50th, 23rd, and Spring streets between 12:01 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. Tuesday through Friday. E trains provide alternate service from these stations, and you can change to the A at 42nd, 14th, or Canal.
