As the L train enters the second week of its slowdown this weekend, there are plenty of service changes hitting most other lines. Watch out for skipped stops across the board (but especially on the 1, 2, 4, 6 and D trains) and limited service in Brooklyn and Queens on the A and J trains. You can also expect longer than usual delays on the 2, D, N, and Q trains, which are only running every 12 minutes—and that’s all without taking into consideration all the unplanned disruptions that are sure to occur.
Uptown 1 and 2 trains skip 50, 59, and 66 Streets and downtown 1 and 2 trains skip 28, 23, 18, Christopher, Houston, Canal and Franklin Streets in Manhattan. 1 trains skip 168 Street in both directions.
Flatbush Avenue-bound 2 trains run express from 241 Street to East 180 Street in the Bronx. The Flatbush Avenue-bound 2 and 5 platform at Winthrop Street in Brooklyn will be closed through July 2019. 2 trains will be running every 12 minutes this weekend.
