No. 7 line suspended
The second of three planned service suspensions to the No. 7 line between Queensboro Plaza and Time Square will take place this weekend from 11:30 p.m. Friday and 5 a.m. Monday morning.
Free shuttle buses will be available between the Queensboro Plaza and Vernon Boulevard-Jackson Avenue stations, making stops at Queens Plaza, Court Square and Hunters Point.
The work will address problems plaguing the line the past few months and increase the reliability and performance of one of the busiest and oldest lines in the entire system.
