Subway Service Alerts: Brooklyn Heights and Vicinity

This weekend, from 11:45 p.m. Friday, April 11 to 5:00 a.m. Monday, April 14 Brooklyn bound F trains will be diverted to the A/C line between West 4th Street in Manhattan and Jay Street-MetroTech, so there will be no direct service from Manhattan to York Street in DUMBO. Those traveling from Manhattan to DUMBO may use the High Street station on the A/C line or ride to Jay Street and change there for a Manhattan bound F to York Street. Those traveling from the Lower East Side stops on the F (East Broadway, Delancey, 2nd Avenue, or Broadway-Lafayette) should take an uptown F to West 4th and change there for a Brooklyn bound A, C. or F train. From Broadway-Lafayette you also can take a downtown 6 local (Broadway-Lafayette station connects to the Bleecker Street station on the 6 line) to Brooklyn Bridge and change there for a Brooklyn bound 4 train to Borough Hall. Also, 3 trains will not be running late at night this weekend, but 2 trains will, so there will be service at Clark Street and at the Borough Hall 2/3 platforms. There are no other planned changes directly affecting service at any local stations this weekend.

The following week, late nights from 11:30 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. Monday, April 14 to Friday, April 18, the A train will not run in either direction between Jay Street and Utica Avenue. Shuttle buses will provide alternate service between these stations. There will be no 3 trains running–although 2 trains will be–between 11:45 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. Monday to Friday. During the wee hours–1:00 to 4:00 a.m.–on Tuesday, April 15, 4 trains will be running in three sections: between Woodlawn and Brooklyn Bridge; between Brooklyn Bridge and Wall Street; and between Wall Street and New Lots Avenue. So, if you’re coming back from or going to Manhattan above Brooklyn Bridge during these hours you’ll need to change trains twice.

For planned service changes that may affect travel on other parts of the system, either during the weekend or the following week, see MTA Info or The Weekender.
