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.
