The end of summer means lots of things: school, cooler weather, new fashions and new restaurants, sure, but also the return of everyones favorite ongoing subway headache. That's right, it is time to play Is The L Train Fucked? And guess what? Yup, this weekend it most certainly is!
From midnight tonight through 5 a.m. Monday there will be no L service between Broadway Junction and 8th Avenue which means the fans of the L shuttle bus, this is your weekend! On the plus side? The DOT just repaved much of the shuttle's route on Metropolitan Avenue, so at least it will be smooth riding?
Meanwhile, the L isn't the only MTA line that will be seeing some work done this weekend (though nothing quite as extreme). You can check out the full lineup of planned service changes right here on mta.info.
