Weekend L Service Disruptions

On Two Weekends in February

MTA NYC Transit announced today that due to necessary track repairs along the L Canarsie line there is no L train service between 8th Avenue and Union Square for the weekends February 2-4 and February 9-11. Customers are directed to use M14 bus service as an alternative. Workers will be chipping out old concrete and pouring new concrete in the tunnel roadbed just west of Bedford Avenue.

Canarsie line trains will operate in two sections on those weekends: between Union Square and Bedford Avenue and between Bedford Avenue and Rockaway Parkway. In addition, the L will skip the 3rd Avenue station in both directions. Trains will run every 15 minutes, so customers should leave extra time for travel.
