2014 Line Weekend Work
In 2014, MTA New York City Transit is moving forward with three major capital improvement projects on the Line in Queens: installing a new Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC) signal system; track replacement and infrastructure work; and Sandy Recovery & Resiliency work reconstructing, replacing, and rehabilitating components inside the Steinway Tubes.
When these projects are completed, customers will benefit from improved service reliability, safety, and more dependable subway service along the 9.4-mile, 21-station line connecting Downtown Flushing, Queens, with Midtown Manhattan.
Get more information about our work on the Line, plus the full calendar of service changes.
