Once again, because of the need to repair damage caused by Hurricane Sandy to the tunnels used by A and C trains between Brooklyn and Manhattan, from 11:45 p.m. Friday, August 21 to 5:00 a.m. Monday, August 24 both Brooklyn and Manhattan bound A and C trains will be diverted to the F line between Jay Street/Metro Tech and West 4th Street. This means no service at all at High Street. To get to or from A/C stops in Manhattan below West 4th use the 2 or 3 to or from Clark Street or Borough Hall as an option. This is the last weekend for this planned diversion.
The following week–Monday, August 31 to Friday, September 4–there will be no G train service between Hoyt-Schermerhorn and Church Avenue each night from 11:30 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. A and F trains provide alternate service. During rush hours Monday through Friday R train service will be less frequent than normal because of track maintenance.
