It’s sad to say that the service changes planned for this weekend, despite being extensively disruptive, seem somewhat better than normal. The D train’s affinity for running on the F line continues, the N has a number of platform closures, and it’s apparently the R train’s turn to go on a bit of a vacation from running, but otherwise there are not a ton of notable new developments. Gauge the damage for yourself below.

No 2 or 3 trains between Brooklyn and Manhattan. Take the 4 or 5 instead. No service at Park Place, Wall St, Clark St and Hoyt St. No 2 trains between Dyre Av and E 180 St. Free shuttle buses provide alternate service.

5 trains replace weekend 2 service between Wakefield-241 St and E 180 St.

No 7 trains between Queensboro Plaza and 34 St-Hudson Yards. Free shuttle buses operate in two sections – between Queensboro Plaza and Vernon Blvd-Jackson Av., and between Times Sq-42 St and 34 St-Hudson Yards – providing alternate service.

Inwood-bound A trains skip 72, 81, 86, 96, 103, 116, 135 and 155 Sts. Ozone Park/Far Rockaway-bound A trains run express from Hoyt Schermerhorn to Euclid Av.

Jamaica-bound F trains skip 14 St and 23 St. Manhattan-bound F trains skip Sutphin Blvd, Briarwood and 75 Av. No F trains between Church Av and Stillwell Av – free shuttle buses provide alternate service. Manhattan-bound F trains skip 169 St.

M service ends early between 71 Av and Essex St. M trains operate between Metropolitan Av and Myrtle Wyckoff Avs and Essex St and Myrtle Av via the J to/from Broadway Junction. No J trains between Marcy Av and Broadway Junction and no M trains between Essex St and Broadway Junction or between Myrtle-Wyckoff Av and Myrtle Av (Broadway). Shuttle trains run every 20 minutes between Metropolitan Av and Myrtle-Wyckoff Avs.

Coney Island-bound N platforms at Fort Hamilton Pkwy, New Utrecht Av, 18 Av, 20 Av, Kings Hwy, Avenue U and 86 St are closed for renovation through the fall. Astoria-bound N trains run express from 36 St, Brooklyn to Canal St via the Manhattan Bridge. Manhattan-bound N trains skip Broadway and 39 Av.

Per the whims of the MTA, there will probably be other problems, and the problems stated above are subject to change and worsen.
