For the next two weekends, 1 train riders will be without service from 11:30 p.m. on Friday evening until 5 a.m. on Monday morning. In order to accommodate work on a series of projects — the Dyckman St. rehab, track panel installation at 215th St., signal cable replacement north of 96th St. and work on the box at the World Trade Center site — the entire line must be shuttered.
While shuttle bus service will be in place, Transit is urging riders to take the 2 and 3, which will be running local, the A train or the M103 bus. The shuttle buses will run in four sections, making stops along the 1 line. One bus will run from 242nd St. to 215th St. with a connection to the A at 207th St.; another will run on St. Nicholas Ave. from 191st St. to 168th St.; the third will run between 168th St. and 96th Sts. with both express and local service; and a fourth will run from Chambers St. to South Ferry in Lower Manhattan.
The service advisory poster, which you can click to enlarge, is below. Obviously, leave extra time to travel if you need the 1 line this weekend.
