This Presidents Day weekend, from about 9:30 p.m. Friday, February 14 to about 5:00 a.m. Tuesday, February 18, there will be no service in either direction at the 4/5 platforms at Borough Hall, as 4 trains will be originating and terminating at Bowling Green, the last stop in Manhattan before Brooklyn (5 trains always stop and originate there on weekends). 2 and 3 trains should (we stress SHOULD) be running normally, and 3 trains will be making the 4 train’s stops between Franklin and New Lots avenues. This is the only planned service change directly affecting service at any local station this weekend.
The following work week, late nights Tuesday, February 18 to Friday, February 21, there will be no service in either direction at Court Street or the N/R platforms at Jay Street-MetroTech, as N trains will be diverted to the Q line over the Manhattan Bridge between DeKalb Avenue and Canal Street, and R trains will not be running between 36th Street in Brooklyn and Whitehall Street in Manhattan, which is where they originate and terminate during late nights.
These are the PLANNED service changes for the coming weekend and following work week that directly affect service at local stations. If you’re planning to take a train not affected by these planned changes, we urge you to first check MTA Info to see if there are any unplanned service disruptions. Also, always check MTA Info for planned or unplanned changes that may affect your trip on other parts of the system.
