Planned Service Suspensions
MTA New York City Transit has scheduled critical work in 2017 on the Line that will require weekend service shutdowns between Manhattan and Queens. The majority of this work involves the installation and testing of a new Communications - Based Train Control (CBTC) signal system. Additionally, we have scheduled track panel replacement work that will not require full station closures to complete. In 2016, we replaced approximately 94% of the Flushing Line's tracks and completed the rehabilitation of the Steinway Tubes in April.
At right is a schedule of major weekend suspensions planned for the 2017. During these changes, 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 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 line.
While not expected, dates are subject to change.
