June 24, 2011 Staff Report
The No. 7 train will be down this weekend between Queensboro Plaza and Times Square.
The closure begins at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, June 25, and will end at 5 a.m. on Monday 27, 2011. The MTA said the closure between Queensboro Plaza and Times Square is part of its emergency work to repair the Steinway Tunnel. That tunnel runs between Queens and Manhattan.
The MTA said that it would provide additional Queens-Manhattan service via the Astoria lines. Subway commuters can take these trains from Queensboro Plaza.
Additionally, there will be a fare-free shuttle bus that will operate between Vernon-Jackson and Queensboro Plaza, while subway is down.
The MTA will be announcing another service disruption during the weekend of July 30 to Aug. 1. That too is part of the tunnel repair.
hope the 7 gets it act together it WAS a great line
Ask a New Yorker loves The Sunnyside Post!
http://www.AskaNewYorker.com I’ve lived in Sunnyside for four years. Just introduced to the SSP!! The 7 train made getting to B and H a bit longer. Overall high marks for the 7:)
Sunnysider – same here – great web site that keeps us informed. I visit here everyday! I moved into Sunnyside just a few years ago and I feel in touch with this town thanks in no small part to this site. My previous town of North Arlington, NJ, I lived there for ten years and never once felt like I knew what was going on or even a part of the town.
Sunnyside’s a decent place to live and the Sunnyside Post is truly great! Every town should have something like this!
I am very happy that this web site is keeping our town up to date about our trains into manhattan which is very importnat to us. Keep up the great job of reporting.
At least it helped Roxy and I am sure many others as well.
Well, at least today (Saturday), they had Q as well as N trains to get us into Manhattan from Queens Plaza. During the last weekend shut-down, it was only N trains. Hopefully, this will prevail on Sunday as well.
UGH totally screws up my commute this weekend 🙁
