Weekend Service Disruptions on the 1 to wrap up New SF work

Recommended Posts

1 Subway Service Suspensions in November

 

As construction work winds down at the South Ferry subway terminal, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) will suspend 1-train service downtown on the weekend of November and 29. Every Saturday night at 12:01 a.m. through Monday at 5 a.m. service will terminate at 14th Street. Free shuttle buses will run between Chambers Street and South Ferry during the outages, which allow crews to test the new station’s electrical systems and subway tracks. The terminal is expected to open by late December 2008.

This interruption will allow crews to test the new signalling system. According to the site's South Ferry page, train crews are being trained for that station. The elevator/escalator is in place. The Dept of Parks and the MTA is in the process of designing a new bus loop outside Whitehall Ferry Terminal. Final utility work on Whitehall St in winter 2008/early 2009.

Pretty exciting!

 

No (1) at SF during the weekends is gonna suck for all those people getting off the ferry.

 

Guess they're gonna have to hit the (4)(5) at BG.

 

Yea I have to sympathise with the Staten Islanders. However, they could get the (Q) at Whitehall (remember this G.O weekend: (N) Broadway Express, (Q) Broadway Local via Whitehall (R) 6th Ave via Bridge).

 

And by the way, they have new entrances as well as the mezzanine-street level lift. Work is going pretty fast there.

Always subject to change. BTW new IRT pick goes in effect 12/21. Since they have added 3 (1) jobs that start at South Ferry Terminal ( the new name ) it better open.

three jobs?

I was trying to find out about that.

Guess they're probably senior. But with the new connection to the (R)(W), it would be another easy A Div terminal to get to.

Not freight train fan but I like commuter-rail and long distance commuter trains... As you can see I am an Acela Fan! :)!

 

What the hell are you talking about here? Your post has no relevancy to my thread. Stop posting posts non-related to the topic. Jeez.

Yeah, they said they are going to open it on the 19th, but who knows?

I will drop down there from time to time to report on the latest updates.

the exact day of opening is 12/21/08.

 

Makes sense... they usually open something up on a Sunday. Examples include the 2002 opening of the IRT tunnel in Lower Manhattan (the restoration of 3 service in Brooklyn and 1 service to SF), the 2004 Manhattan Bridge changes and I believe both the Manhattan Bridge Reroute with the <Q>(Q)(W) and the 63rd Street Tunnel Connector service began on Sundays.

There is possibly bugs on my other computer which tend to randomly post my post on another thread... Goodness, I am going to reinstall my OS!!!

 

And yes, I hate how the MTA is having so much disruption but I like how the MTA is updating it's infrstracture to meet the needs of the 21st century...

 

-I don't see how bugs could do that... I mean, you could look at where it says THREAD.

-If the MTA wants to update its ageing infrastructure, it has to mess up the service. I mean I know the weekend service disruptions are a real pain in the ass, but I know that they are trying to fix some things up. Honestly, I could do away with normal service for 2 days for a couple weeks rather than to wait for something to go awry in the future and mess it all up.

MTR, deal with it...

 

And yesm the MTA is updating it's infrastructure... Deal with the pain, you'll love the gain! :D!

 

Um, no... you deal with it...

Say that to yourself... **shakes head**

 

When the new station opens, there would not be as many G.Os... if there are, its WTC work related.

LOLz, MTR, we all have to deal with it, :)!

 

BEAT IT. If you have nothing to contribute, don't add to it.

 

@topic: Saw an Orion7 on Broadway. It was a No. 1 Shuttle. NOBODY was in it. Wow.

Read it in the Downtown Express; supposedly the Port isn't finish with the 1 underpinning. They have to dig well below the "tunnel" in order to get the machines from one side of The Pit to the other. The Port built a wall on Silverstein's Tower 4 footprint, and Silverstein needs the area to be clear so he could begin building, however the Port said the wall is needed because the underpinning is not done yet.

Oh wow, more disruptions.

Yes, the station is set to open in Feburary-2009. Two more monthes and the station is complete! :D!

 

It is opening on 21 December 2008. Everyone arrived on that one. Landscaping work will continue until Feb 2009. However service begins at the new station on 21 December 2008.

It's been established that unless things change, which is possible, the station will open mid December.
