Despite a dusting, weekend work goes on

By · Published in 2011

Update (Saturday, 12:50 p.m.): New York City Transit just announced that weekend work on the D, N and R has been canceled due to the extremely cold temperatures. The service advisories have been updated below to reflect that change.

When last night’s snow storm descended upon New York City, the MTA prepared to cancel its slate of weekend work. The storm, though, ended up being nothing more than a light dusting, and the authority will go ahead with this weekend’s changes as planned. Alas.

As always, these changes come to me via New York City Transit and are subject to change without notice. Check the signs in your local station and listen to on-board announcements. Subway Weekender has the map.
