Overnight service disruptions will hit the L line between Ridgewood and Williamsburg beginning next week, the MTA announced.
L train service will be suspended between Myrtle-Wyckoff Avenues and Lorimer Street late nights, Monday through Friday, from 11:15 p.m. to 5 a.m. The disruption begins Monday night, Feb. 23, and will continue for the following three weeks through Friday, Mar. 13, weather permitting.
Free shuttle buses will replace L train service between both points, with bus stops located near all affected stations.
Meanwhile, L train service will operate in two separate sections — between Myrtle-Wyckoff Avenues and Canarsie-Rockaway Parkway and between Lorimer Street and Eighth Avenue in Manhattan. However, trains running on these sections will operate every 20 minutes in each direction.
Those wishing to travel between Brooklyn/Queens and Manhattan were advised to use the A or J train, available at the Broadway Junction station, as alternate routes.
According to an MTA spokesperson, crews will upgrade and test the line’s Communications Based Train Control system, which tracks car movements along the line and controls train speed and braking.
