MTA to F and G Train Riders: Fugettaboutit!
Tuesday, January 04, 2011
F and G train riders can say Farewell and Goodbye to regular service for the next two years.
From January 10 until May 2011, there will be no service at the 15th Street-Prospect Park Station and Fort Hamilton Parkway Station for Manhattan-bound F or Queens-bound G trains. At the Smith-9th St Station, there will be no Manhattan-bound F service.
Riders can catch Manhattan-bound F and Queens-bound G trains at a temporary platform set up at the Coney Island-bound side of the Fourth Avenue-Ninth Street stop.
The MTA is beginning major renovations on the Smith-Ninth Street and Fourth Avenue-Ninth Street stations, both of which occupy the Culver Viaduct high over the Gowanus Canal.
The Smith-9th Street station will be closed from late May 2011 through Spring 2012. After it reopens, there will be no Coney Island-bound F trains at the station until Fall 2012.
From late fall 2011 to spring 2012, expect no Coney Island-bound F or Church Avenue-bound G train service at the 15th Street-Prospect Park and Fort Hamilton Parkway stations. All southbound trains will stop on the express track at the Church Avenue and 7th Avenue stations.
This weekend’s F and G service between Jay Street-MetroTech and Church Avenue will be replaced by free shuttle buses in both directions.
