Just like last weekend, barring unforeseen circumstances, there will be service at all local stations from late Friday evening, October 1 to early Monday morning, October 4, although 2 trains will be running on a slightly less frequent schedule (every 12 minutes). Indeed, there will be extra service in both directions at Court Street and Jay street, as N (which usually only serve Brooklyn Heights late at night) and Q trains will be diverted to the R line from midnight Saturday morning to early Monday morning.
The following work week – Monday morning, October 4 to Friday evening, October 8 – there will be several minor disruptions. Every morning from 7:20 to 8:50 some Brooklyn bound 5 trains will be diverted to the 2 line from the Bronx to Franklin Avenue and others will terminate at Rector Street in Manhattan. If you’re traveling from Manhattan to Brooklyn during these hours, pay attention to announcements. Every late night to early the following morning, Monday to Friday, there will be no service from Manhattan to Court Street or to the N/R platforms at Jay Street-MetroTech, as Brooklyn bound N and R trains will be diverted to the Q line from Canal Street to DeKalb Avenue.
These are the PLANNED service changes for the coming weekend and following work week. If you’re planning to take a train not affected by these planned changes, we urge you to first check New MTA Info to see if there are any unplanned service disruptions.
