(5) Express Service between East 180 St and 3 Av-149 St is Restored

Weekday, AM and PM Rush Hours effective Tuesday, September 7, 2010 through March 2011

 

• By re-scheduling planned work, (5) express service can be reinstated during this seven month period.

 

• Starting in April 2011, (5) express service will need to be suspended until August 2011.

 

Work on these projects will also cause weekend service changes to occur.

 

 

How exactly is this a "rescheduling" of planned work, if the original work was to go continuously through Aug 2011 anyway? Maybe people were getting tired of seeing express service in a GO or emergency and realized it could still happen.

I've operated via the express tracks a few times while this long term G.O. has been in effect, as have some (2) trains, so it's no big deal. There was no reason for express service to be canceled for such a long time in the first place.

I bet this will crawl like a one legged chicken, regardless...

 

Even (6)'s fly pass work zone at Witlock at Soundview. The (5) Express is known to crawl from Simpson to E 180 St do to the curvyness of the line.

No things start to slow down after 174th st. The train slows down for a bit at Simpson due to it curving from Westchester to Southern blvd but rushes thru Freeman St/Southern Blvd normal.

Well im thinking WPR Exp is suspended due to 180th rehab. Ive been in that station a few times and certain tracks are closed down. So far the Manhattan tracks are closed forcing Manhattan about WPR local service to run on the M track. (5) Shuttle service would relay south of 180th north of tremont.
