Subway Service Alerts: Brooklyn Heights and Vicinity

After a week’s reprieve, the F train/D train do-si-do is back. From 9:30 PM Friday, April 13 to 5:00 AM Monday, April 16, F trains will be re-routed to the D line and D trains re-routed to the F in both directions, between West 4th Street and Stillwell Avenue. For F stops in Manhattan up to West 4th, you may take a D from Jay Street-MetroTech or York Street in DUMBO. If you’re going to an F stop above West 4th, you may change from the D to the F there. Conversely, if you’re taking an F from above West 4th to York or Jay, change to a D at West 4th. If you wonder what good this does, see the first comment to this post.

This weekend we also have, from 11:45 PM Friday to 5:00 AM Monday, the continuing, until some time this summer, cancellation of 2 or 3 train service in either direction (meaning no service at Clark Street or on the 2/3 platforms at Borough Hall). As usual, during the absence of 2/3 service, 4 and 5 (5 trains don’t usually serve Brooklyn on weekends) will provide alternate service to and into, and out of, Brooklyn.

Also this weekend, from 9:30 PM Friday to 5:00 AM Monday, there will be extra service in both drections at Court Street and on the N/R platforms at Jay Street-Metro Tech, as N trains are being diverted to the R line between Atlantic Avenue and Canal Street for the entire weekend instead of just late at night.

The following work week — Monday, April 16 to Friday, April 20 — the D/F do-si-do will continue each night from 9:30 PM to 5:00 AM. See instructions in the top paragraph of this post. Also, each night from 11:15 PM to 5:00 AM there will be no Brooklyn bound service at Court Street or the N/R platforms at Jay Street. Use Brooklyn bound 4 trains from Manhattan, and for stops on the routes to Bay Ridge or Coney Island, take the 4 to Atlantic Avenue, and change there for an R or N train.

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