Less frequent L subway line trains toward 8 Av

What’s the work? We are doing an inspection of the L subway tunnel between Brooklyn and Manhattan.

From 11 PM to 5 AM on these weeknights, 8 Av-bound L subway trains will run approximately every 20 minutes. If you're using 1 Av or 3 Av Stations, all trains will stop on the 8 Av-bound track—look for the signs on the platform to point you in the right direction. Also, be sure to check out to the countdown clocks, the MYmta app and announcements for additional details.
