Let’s start things off with some good news: The L and G trains will be running smoothly with no anticipated changes this weekend. The worse news is that many lines will experience station closures and delays. Riders of the 5 will be hit especially hard, with trains running only every 20 minutes. Traveling between boroughs won’t be easy either. 7 service between Queensboro Plaza and 34 Street-Hudson Yards continues to be out and there will be no J or M service between Brooklyn and Manhattan. Those free shuttle buses are sure to be packed.

There will be no A service in Queens between Howard Beach-JFK and Mott Avenue, take a free shuttle bus instead. A trains will run every ten minutes.

168 Street-bound C trains run via the F from Jay Street-MetroTech to W 4 Street and skip Kingston-Throop, Franklin, Clinton-Washington, and Lafayette Avenues in Brooklyn. C trains will run every 12 minutes.

Coney Island-bound F trains skip 14 Street and 23 Street in Manhattan but make stops at 67 Avenue, 63 Drive, Woodhaven Blvd, Grand Avenue, and Elmhurst Avenue in Queens. F trains make stops at 65 Street, Northern Blvd, 46, Steinway, and 36 Streets in Queens. Coney Island-bound trains run via the E from Roosevelt Avenue to 5 Avenue/53 Street.
