Subway riders in Long Island City will again lose full 7 train service on two weekends this November.
There will be no 7 train service between 34th Street-Hudson Yards and Queensboro Plaza from Nov. 6 through 9 and Nov. 13 through 16, according to the MTA.
The agency is working on a number of upgrades to the line, including the installation of a Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC), track replacement and infrastructure work and reconstruction of the Steinway Tubes.
The 7 train has continually been a problem line for Queens residents and the organization Riders Alliance, aimed at advocating for better transportation, has even created a campaign to allow riders to share their 7 train horror stories.
The MTA will provide free shuttle buses and shuttle trains during this time and riders will also have the option to take the N,Q or R trains from Queensboro Plaza or the E, F or G trains from Queens Plaza.
According to the agency’s website, this construction “will bring a modern, state-of-the-art signal system and reliable, resilient infrastructure upgrades to the 7 line.”
