7 Train To Follow Normal Schedule This Weekend, Scheduled Track Work Canceled

7subway1Jan. 22, 2016 Staff Report

With a snowstorm expected to hit New York City, the MTA has canceled its 7 train work this weekend and the train will follow its normal schedule.

This weekend was supposed to be the first of eight weekends this year when the 7 train would be down between Queensboro Plaza and Times Square in order for the MTA to replace its decades-old signaling system and put down new tracks.

The MTA said that all scheduled work has been cancelled this weekend.

The MTA said it will have a fleet of snow and ice-busting equipment to keep the outdoor tracks, switches and third rails clear of snow and ice. Additional personnel will be added during the storm.

MTA should cancel all track work on weekends and do work from midnight to 5 AM certain weeknights . It is a terribly wasteful agency that has terrible leadership. It holds the city hostage with fare increases because they know people have to get to work.

Great ! this explains why the surveyers from McDonalds were counting foot traffic in front of 49-10 Vernon Blvd, the Army Navy store yesterday afternoon. We all have been trying to block the big box chains from coming to LIC. Now they are a few dollars away from signing a lease there.
