Fall 2016
Planned Service Suspensions

Major 7 subway Line Weekend
Work Continues

MTA New York City Transit is completing the last of three recent capital improvement projects on the 7 subway Line - the installation and testing of a new Communications - Based Train Control (CBTC) signal system. The other two projects, which were substantially completed earlier in 2016, consisted of elevated track replacement and infrastructure work and the reconstruction and fortification of the Steinway Tubes. The majority of the remaining CBTC work is scheduled over weekends when ridership is lower, giving our workers continuous, train-free access to the 7 subway Line.

At right is a schedule of major weekend suspensions planned for the remainder of 2016. During these changes, 7 subway service will be partially suspended and replaced by free shuttle buses, and service will be increased on other subway lines to provide alternate travel options. In addition, the 7 subway Line may be subjected to other, less severe weekend, weeknight, or midday disruptions.

While service will continue to operate, this work will result in service changes that may affect your trip. See the “Stay Informed” box below for ways to keep abreast of service changes affecting the 7 subway line.
