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.

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