West Side IRT Closure

Posted by Nilet on Tue Aug 13 07:00:51 2019

So next two weekends, pretty much the entire Lenox/Broadway/7th Avenue IRT is straight-up closedó no 2 or 3 service in Manhattan, and no 1 south of 137th due to replacing the switches at 96th.

Except that if my understanding of the track layout is correct, they can still run 1 and/or 3 trains from South Ferry or Brooklyn to Times Square, as long as the trains run express in at least one direction. So why not? Did the switches get changed? Signal system doesn't allow it? Deemed too complicated? Just didn't want to bother and figured no one would gripe about this specifically?
