Subway Service Changes At Ave U, Neck Rd To Last Until November

Commuters felt the first stretch last week of what they’ll be facing for the next eight months, as the MTA continues to replace tracks serving the Brighton line’s B and Q trains.

According to the MTA’s website, the 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. work, which sees disruptions of service at Gravesend Neck Road and Avenue U, will continue through November 16.

The work means that Coney Island-bound Q trains skip Avenue U and Gravesend Neck Road between the hours above, and that Manhattan-bound B trains will be running local between Sheepshead Bay Road and Kings Highway.

For south-bound straphangers looking to get to those stops, you will need to continue your trip until Sheepshead Bay Road, transfer to the northbound platform, and take either the B or Q back up.
