Subway Service Alerts: Brooklyn Heights and Nearby

Once again this weekend, from 11:30 PM Friday, August 16 to 5:00 AM Monday, August 19 there will be no 3 train service, though 2 trains should be running normally. To get to or from 3 train stops between Franklin Avenue and New Lots Avenue in Brooklyn, take the 4 train, which will make these stops. This will continue on late nights the following work week, each night from 9:30 PM to 5:00 AM, Monday, August 19 to Friday, August 23.

From Monday to Friday, each night from 11:45 PM to 5:00 AM there will be no service in either direction at High Street, as A trains will be diverted to the F line between Jay Street-MetroTech and West 4th Street, and C trains don’t serve Brooklyn late at night. Use 2 trains as an option.

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.

    Nope. No West Side IRT service. No service at Clark St.

    That’s not a planned change. There have been lots of unplanned service disruptions lately, which is why I always advise checking MTA Info.

    HUH? … Which word in “No service at Clark Street” don’t you get?

    We’re blessed with great subways, but – any way you slice it – CLARK ST. is *the* signature stop in BH.

    I appreciate your providing an alternative to Google Maps & other online options, but when you split hairs and do NOT make clear what revised travel plans are called for … you do the community a very serious dis-service.

    The discussion above was about service the previous weekend, when the MTA’s announcement of planned service changes said no 3 trains but 2 trains were not affected. My post this week says there will be no service at Clark Street this coming weekend.

    Adding to my previous comment,which was dashed off on my phone at work, what I do is give advance notice, based on the MTA’s notices of planned service changes as of Wednesday or Thursday, of those service changes planned for the following weekend and the work week following that. I always note that this is limited to planned changes, and that it’s a good idea always to check MTA Info for possible unplanned changes because of the deraded “signal problems” and the host of other gremlins that plague the MTA. I still think it’s useful to let readers know in advance that, for example, there will be no service or only service in one direction at a particular station over a weekend or late night period.
