We noticed some new signs posted at the B/Q train platform yesterday, indicating some early trackwork heading up to the much maligned B train express cancellation. The changes are as follows:
B Line: For three consecutive Fridays – September 11, 18, and 25 – service will terminate at 8:45 p.m.
Q Line: For the weekends of September 11 – 14, and September 18 – 21, there will be no trains between Prospect Park and Kings Highway. Service will be replaced by a free shuttle bus between stations. The weekend service changes begin Friday at 9:30 p.m. and continue until 5 a.m. on Monday.
Essentially, it means areas of Southern Brooklyn along the B/Q line are screwed for going into or coming from the city beginning Friday evenings. Thanks MTA!
