Regular Service Resumes on Queens Blvd Line, Lexington Avenue Local Line

Work to install new tracks and infrastructure have been completed on the express tracks of the Queens Boulevard Line and the local tracks of the Lexington Avenue Line in lower Manhattan, ending weeks of reduced rush hour service and slower train speeds in work zones that have affected the commutes of thousands of customers.

Regular service resumed on all lines Tuesday morning in time for the return of customers from the long holiday weekend. The work was scheduled for the last weeks of summer because it is typically one of the lowest-ridership periods during the year.
