Were you shut out of the Clark Street or Hoyt Street 2/3 subway stations this past weekend?
Starting on Friday, June 16, those two stations will be closed every weekend from Friday 11:45pm until Monday at 5am until Spring 2018 so the MTA can repair damages caused by Superstorm Sandy back in 2012.
The MTA states on its website that the 98-year-old Clark Street tunnel, that runs under the East River, was heavily damaged and repairs need to be made to: the track, signals, pump rooms, fire protection system, and power and communication cables. The project will include resiliency measures that will reduce future flood risk.
Here’s what you’ll need to know:
Every Friday night at 11:45pm until Monday morning at 5am
Clark Street and Hoyt Street stations will be closed
There will be no 2 or 3 service in Brooklyn during these hours
The 4 service will be extended to New Lots Avenue to replace 3 service
The 5 service will be extended to Flatbush Avenue to replace 2 service
Both the 4 and 5 trains will run local in Brooklyn.
The MTA suggests catching the 4 or 5 trains at either the Borough Hall or Nevins Street stations.
