2 and 3 trains will not run between Manhattan and Brooklyn on weekends for a year

Schleping between Manhattan and Brooklyn on the weekends just got a lot more painful. 

As of last weekend, 2 and 3 trains stopped running between the boroughs from 11:45pm on Fridays through 5am on Mondays, throwing a wrench in the commutes of hundreds of thousands of people. The service closure will allow crews to repair the 98-year-old Clark Street Tunnel, which was damaged by flooding in 2012 during Hurricane Sandy.

Between these stretches, service on 3 trains will end at 14th Street, and 2 trains will run along the 1 track south of Chamber Street. Service on 4 and 5 trains will be extended to New Lots and Flatbush Avenues, respectively, which should mitigate some of the effects of the closure. The changes will be in effect until the spring of 2018.

It could be a lot worse for interborough travelers—ask anyone who lives off the L train
