The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) today announced weekend overnight service changes beginning this Friday at 11:45 p.m. on the   line between Atlantic Av-Barclays Ctr and Prospect Park, as crews perform track and signal upgrades to improve service reliability and track resiliency.

For 5 consecutive weekends, beginning Friday, July 15 to Monday, August 15, weekend work will take place from 11:45 p.m. to 5 a.m. Service changes are as follows: 

  • Coney Island-bound Q trains operate via the N line between Atlantic Av-Barclays Ctr and Stillwell Av, non-stop between 59 St and Stillwell Av
  • Manhattan-bound Q trains will operate via the D line from Stillwell Av to Atlantic Av-Barclays Ctr, making stops at Bay Pkwy, 62 St-New Utrecht Av, 9 Av and 36 St
  • Q shuttle trains will operate between Prospect Park and Stillwell Av
  • Buses will operate between Atlantic Av and Prospect Park

Free shuttle buses will continue to replace Q trains between Atlantic Av-Barclays Ctr and Prospect Park every weeknight (Monday through Friday), through August 26 from 11:45 p.m. to 5 a.m. 

The section of tunnel where the work is taking place is under Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. Along with signal and track-related improvements such as track replacement, LED light installation, and third rail protection board replacement, further grouting efforts will reinforce resiliency to water infiltration.
