MTA reducing service on several Queens lines through Sept. 4

E train

Aug. 17, 2015 By Michael Florio

Many Queens subway riders can expect slower rush hour commutes over next three weeks.

The E, F, M and R subway lines will run less frequently during the morning and evening hours—in order for the MTA to rebuild sections of the express tracks along the Queens Boulevard routes. The construction is likely to lead to delays and crowded trains.

The MTA began work this morning and it will run until September 4th.

Due to the construction, the E and F trains will run much slower through the work zones, with some running on local tracks—reducing the number of trains that can run on all four lines, an MTA spokeswoman said.

The trains in Manhattan and Brooklyn are not likely to be disrupted by the work, according to the spokeswoman.

The work has been schedule for the last three weeks of summer since this is the period where ridership is low, according to the MTA.
