Lots of shutdowns coming up. Let’s run them down. First, as part of a critical switch replacement project, the MTA is shutting down some service in parts of Brooklyn on the B, Q and F lines. For two weeks starting at 11 p.m. Friday and running until 5 a.m. Monday, December 1, F trains will be suspended in both directions between Coney Island and Avenue X, and Q trains will be suspended in both directions between Coney Island and Brighton Beach. Free shuttle buses will provide alternate service between Coney Island and all affected stations between Avenue X on the F line, and Brighton Beach on the Brighton lines.

The worse news concerns Sandy-related shutdowns. For 40 weekends next year — non-consecutive at least — the A and C trains will not run through the Cranberry St. Tunnel as the MTA works through repairs. The trains will run via the F between West 4th and Jay St., and we’ll see how the rest of the service plans shape up. It’s not a full shutdown a la the R or G trains, but it’s not a particularly comforting amount of work that looms. The Sandy-related shutdowns will only spread further before they end.

Meanwhile, the weekend’s changes:


From 6:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. Saturday, November 22 and Sunday, November 23, 2 trains will not run in Brooklyn.

This was a bit of a light week. My new job gives me less time for posts, and I appreciate you all sticking with me through busier and less active weeks. It was also a slow news week as any transit-related developments were put on hold for Election Day. I’m sure we’ll hear more from the MTA Reinvention Commission and word on the fare hikes now that Cuomo doesn’t have to run up the score against anyone.

Next week, I’ll have a look at the new Fulton St. Transit Center after this Sunday’s ribbon-cutting and some developments on the plan, now in jeopardy, to bring the PATH train to Newark airport. Tonight, we have service advisories.

It’s Marathon Weekend — which usually means fewer subway changes. But not this weekend. The 1 isn’t running between 96th and 242nd Sts., and there are a slew of other changes that will make travel a little rough.

So I had a back-and-forth with the MTA about these service advisories. I noted last week that the press office is no longer providing a reason for the changes, and as I said then, I and a few others liked seeing why our trains were rerouted, running local or being bustituted every weekend. The press office said to me that gathering all that information took up too much of their time, and so now we have service advisories without that information. I still prefer the added info.

Before I delve in, let me think to a Times piece on subway construction. You may think this would turn into a piece on why everything is so costly and takes so long and how initial planning for the Second Ave. Subway led to this foolish phased build-out, but you would be wrong. It is instead a piece of tropes that won’t die. West Siders want the 7 line extension; Upper East Siders are again complaining about subway construction. They’ll love the Second Ave. line once it opens, but for now you have people who didn’t adequately prepare for construction moaning about it. Same old, same old in the land of NIMBYs.

P123poster

A short while ago, I got home from a screening of The Warriors at BAM. This was the first showing of BAM’s Retro Metro film festival, and if tonight’s crowd is any indication, the series is going to be a huge hit. The 9:45 screening of The Warriors was packed, and I imagine Sunday’s screenings of The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 will be as well. I’m aiming to see the 2:30 showing. Say hi if you see me. Meanwhile, the full listings are on BAM’s site. Can you dig it?

As a note on the weekend service advisories, these always are sent to me by the MTA’s press office, and lately, they’ve removed the entrance sentence concerning why trains are rerouted. I’ve always enjoyed that line as it shows that the MTA is implementing these weekend changes for a reason, and I think omitting it creates a gap between the public’s understanding of what’s happening and the MTA’s need to make changes. I’ll see if I can find out why that information is no longer included with these emails. Meanwhile, here’s the extensive slate of changes.

If I have the opportunity to write more on Friday, I will. I haven’t had a chance to chime in on the endless re-blogging of I Quant NY’s claim that $19.05 is the best amount to use to fill a MetroCard. I’m unsurprisingly a bit skeptical that this is some kind of vital New York City lifehack. More on that later.

Meanwhile, the MTA hasn’t given any further word on the early opening of the Montague St. Tunnel, but I’ve heard service could be restored any time between Saturday night and Monday morning. I’ll of course let you know here and via my Twitter account when the opening is officially confirmed. For now, continue to assume BMT Broadway service will run via the Manhattan Bridge. And now onto the service changes for the upcoming weekend.
