Beginning this weekend (well, 5am Monday morning), the 163 St-Amsterdam A and C stop will be closing in both directions at all times until the fall. A full load of brutal if temporary service changes will further frustrate straphangers this weekend, with the 4, A, and C trains in particular skipping a larger number of stops. The F and D will be significantly rerouted in Brooklyn and Manhattan, and 2 and 3 service remains suspended between the two boroughs.
There is no weekend 2 or 3 service between Brooklyn and Manhattan, and thus no service at Park Place, Wall St, Clark St and Hoyt St.
2 trains replace weekend 5 service between Dyre Av and E 180 St.
New Lots Av-bound 4 trains skip 33, 28, 23 Sts, Astor Pl, Bleecker, Spring and Canal Sts. Woodlawn-bound trains skip 161 St, 167 St, 170 St, Mt Eden Av and 176 St. Service operates every 16 minutes between 125 St and Woodlawn.

Ozone Park/Far Rockaway-bound A trains skip 163, 155, 135, 116, 110, 103, 96, 86, 81, 72, 50, 23, and Spring Sts. Beginning this Monday, March 12, at 5am, 163 St-Amsterdam Av will close in both directions until the fall.

Coney Island-bound F trains skip Union St, 4 Av-9 St, Prospect Av, and 25 St. F service operates between Jamaica-179 St and W 4 St and via the D to/from Stillwell Av.
M service ends early between 71 Av and Essex St. No M trains between Myrtle-Wyckoff Av and Myrtle Av (Broadway). Free shuttle buses provide alternate service between Myrtle Av and Myrtle-Wyckoff Avs, stopping at Central Av and Knickerbocker Av every 20 minutes.
