Train delays expected for E, F, M and R lines

By Gabriel Rom

Subway passengers who used the E, F, M and R trains along the Queens Boulevard line will likely face substantial delays over the next two weeks, especially during rush hour times.

Construction work is focused on express tracks in Queens, but delays are expected to carry over for all four lines.

There will be no E service to or from Jamaica-179 Street and customers should use the F instead and transfer at Union Turnpike.

The work, the MTA said, is necessary to keep the express tracks in good condition along the Queens Boulevard line.

According to the MTA, work was scheduled during the last three weeks of summer because it is one of the lowest-ridership periods of the entire year.
