The usual roster of service changes is coming to a subway near you this weekend. There will be limited service uptown and in the Bronx on 1 and 2 trains, heavy delays continue on the 5, and for the majority of the weekend, Flushing-bound 7 trains will be skipping a bunch of stops in Queens. The worse news is that those changes won’t simply go away at 5 a.m. on Monday—the week ahead has its own list of service changes, and it’s a lot longer than usual. For now, check out the weekend’s damage below.

1 trains are still skipping 168 Street in both directions. Downtown 1 trains will also skip 137, 125, 116, 110 and 103 Streets, while uptown 1 trains will skip Franklin, Canal, Houston, Christopher, 18, 23 and 28 Streets in Manhattan. The 1 won’t be running between 96 Street and 242 Street, so take the A or C train, M3, M100, or free shuttle buses instead.

There won’t be any 2 service between 241 Street and Gun Hill Road in the Bronx this weekend, hop on a shuttle bus instead. The Flatbush Avenue-bound 2 and 5 platforms at Winthrop Street and Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn remain closed through July. 2 trains will run approximately every 12 minutes throughout the weekend.

Downtown 3 trains run local from 34 Street-Penn Station to Chambers Street in Manhattan.

From 10 p.m. on Saturday to 11 p.m. on Sunday, uptown 4 and 5 trains run local from Grand Central-42 Street to 125 Street in Manhattan, and on weekend nights uptown 4 trains will also skip 23, 28, and 33 Streets in Manhattan.

5 trains will only run every 20 minutes this weekend.

Uptown 6 trains will skip 23, 28, and 33 Streets in Manhattan. Brooklyn Bridge-bound 6 trains run express from Parkchester to 3 Avenue-138 Street in the Bronx.

We probably don’t need to repeat this anymore but: L trains run every 20 minutes between Rockaway Pkwy in Brooklyn and 8 Avenue in Manhattan. All L trains at 1 Avenue and 3 Avenue in Manhattan board from the Brooklyn-bound platform.

The Franklin Avenue Shuttle in Brooklyn is replaced by free shuttle buses.

The 62 Street/New Utrecht Avenue Station D, N transfer passageway is still closed for ongoing elevator repairs. D trains run approximately every 12 minutes this weekend.

Queens-bound F trains skip Fort Hamilton Pkwy, 15 Street-Prospect Park and 4 Avenue-9 Street in Brooklyn. Jamaica-bound F trains skip Briarwood and Sutphin Blvd in Queens.

M service is extended to the 96 Street Q station in Manhattan.

Uptown N, Q, and R trains skip 49 Street in Manhattan. Coney Island-bound N platforms at Fort Hamilton Pkwy, New Utrecht, 18, and 20 Avenues are temporarily closed. The Astoria Blvd NW station is temporarily closed. From 3:45 a.m. on Saturday to 10 p.m. on Sunday Astoria-bound N trains skip 39 Avenue, 36 Avenue, Broadway, and 30 Avenue in Queens. On weekend nights, Coney Island-bound N trains skip Union Street, 4 Avenue-9 Street, Prospect Avenue and 25 Street in Brooklyn. N trains run every 12 minutes.

On Saturday and Sunday, from 5:45 a.m. to 8 p.m., 96 Street-bound Q trains run express from Kings Hwy to Prospect Park in Brooklyn. Q trains run approximately every 10 minutes.

There won’t be any R service between 95 Street and 36 Street in Brooklyn this weekend, hop on the N or a free shuttle bus. 9 Avenue-bound R trains skip Union Street, 4 Avenue-9 Street, Prospect Avenue and 25 Street in Brooklyn. Manhattan-bound R trains will run express from 71 Avenue to Queens Plaza in Queens.

For J service between Crescent Street in Brooklyn and Jamaica Center in Queens, take the E train or a free shuttle bus.

Queens-bound G trains skip Fort Hamilton Pkwy, 15 Street-Prospect Park and 4 Avenue-9 Street in Brooklyn.

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