Unplanned Subway Service Changes

Recommended Posts

Posted: 12/26/2016 12:01AM 
 

Due to a loss of power at 7 Av, the following service changes are in effect:

Northbound d.png trains terminate at Atlantic Av-Barclays Center.

Southbound d.png trains are running on the a.png line from 59 St-Columbus Circle to World Trade Center e.png station.

e.png trains are running on the r.png line from Queens Plaza to Whitehall St in both directions and terminate.

f.png tains are running on the e.png line between Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Av and Queens Plaza then over the g.png line between Court Square and Bergen St in both directions.

There is no service on the e.png line between World Trade Center and Queens Plaza in both directions.

There is no service on the f.png line between 21 St-Queensbridge and Jay St-MetroTech in both directions..

As an alternative, use 7.png and n.png train service for service between Queens and Manhattan, as well as nearby 6 Av stations in Manhattan.

For service between Brooklyn and Manhattan, take a.pngn.pngq.png train service instead to nearby station stops.

Expect delays in a.pngc.pngd.pnge.pngf.pngg.pngn.png and  q.png trains service in both directions.

Allow additional travel time.

 

From my perspective:

-6th Avenue is out

-53rd Street Tunnel is out

-63rd Street Tunnel is out

I’m glad I avoided 6 Avenue. Mechanical problems at 7 Avenue on the (E), at 36 Street on the (D) / (N), and an uptown (F) were the prelude to the major outage. I opted to run to the Broadway platform instead for the (Q), but ended up taking the (N) since the problem at 36 Street cleared up.

Update: (D) trains operate in two sections:

1. Between 205 St and 59 St-Columbus Circle then via the (A) line to World Trade Center (E) station

 

2. Between Coney Island and Atlantic Av-Barclays Center

 

(E) trains operate between Jamaica Center and Queens Plaza then via the (R) line to Whitehall Street

 

(F) trains operate via the (G)

The state of NYC Fire Wire Facebook that they are evacuating 1000 people at Lex-53 and over 250 at 34th Street Herald Square.  This must be some mess.

Broadway: (E)(F)(N)(Q)

 

RIVER CROSSINGS:

63rd: Nothing

60th: (E)(F)(N)

53rd: Nothing

Rutgers: (D)

Manhattan Bridge: (F)(Q) both on south side

Montague: (N)

 

BROOKLYN

4th Avenue: (F)(N)

Due to an unauthorized person on the roadbed at Clinton-Washington Aves, the following service changes are in effect:

Southbound A trains terminate at Jay St-MetroTech.

Northbound A trains terminate at Euclid Av.

Police are on-scene and investigating.

As an alternative, for service between Jay St-MetroTech and Broadway Junction, take B25 bus service making nearby stations stops.

For service between Euclid Av and Liberty Av, take nearby B14 bus service along Sutter Av making nearby station stops.

Expect delays in both directions.

Allow additional travel time

3 out of those 4 things are already happening Monday... because the subway will be running on a weekend schedule.

 

It'll just be like a GO is going on for Monday. I'm pretty sure everything will be back to normal on Tuesday, if not before.

I don't get why the (A) can't terminate at Broadway Junction to at least offer connections to the (J)(L). (Actually, this is the same discussion we had before about the Lefferts shuttle).

Never say never. ????

 

It is quite possible, in fact. Likely, even.

All the changes from last night are done with, except the (D) is not running between Broadway-Lafayette (2 Av) and Atlantic Av.

Never mind the two sections just joined just now.

Why do I get the feeling you're hinting at something here...?  :P

 

I am glad I was off yesterday and got to avoid this mess though.

Is this the weird service change you were talking about?

My question exactly. This showed us the type of thing that it would take to send the (F) over the (R)

The (F) would usually use the (G) line, but since the (D) was also blocked from the Brooklyn BMT via 6th Av. and could access only the (F) from 8th Ave, while the (F) could access the BMT via Bway, then it was easier to just swap them. 

 

So perhaps it's some work that takes out the entire 6th Ave. line. I know they're doing work on the switch at W4th, with new signals going in, so maybe it has something to do with that, though that wouldn't affect the express tracks.

Perhaps Herald Square interlocking is completely out?
