The MTA has announced that the No. 7 train will be down between 34 St Hudson Yards and Queensboro Plaza for two weekends next month.
The cuts will take place the weekends of Nov 6-9 and Nov. 13-16.
Service for both these weekends—between Queensboro Plaza and 34 St. Hudson Yards– will be suspended from 11:30 pm Friday and 5 am Monday.
The MTA says that the cuts are in order for it to install its Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC) signal system; replace elevated tracks; and for the fortification of the Steinway Tubes (which connects Queens to Manhattan).
The MTA will provide free shuttle buses during this time and riders will also have the option to take the N,Q or R trains from Queensboro Plaza or the E, F or G trains from Queens Plaza.
