Making Progress in 2014

7 Line icon Line Work &
Planned Service Changes

In 2014, we will continue work to advance three major capital improvement projects: a new Communications-Based Train Control signal system, track replacement and infrastructure work, and Sandy Recovery & Resiliency work reconstructing, replacing, and rehabilitating components inside the Steinway Tubes, which connect Queens and Manhattan.

The schedule for this work is designed to make the best use of weekend-long time frames and facilitate continuous train-free access to as much of the 7 line icon line as possible for our workers. We are aware of the inconvenience this causes and we appreciate your patience.

See schedule at right for dates when this important work will impact 7 line icon service on weekends through July. The schedule for the remainder of 2014 will be released later in the year. Other changes to service during weeknights may also affect your trip.
