Reminder: M train won’t run this weekend

65th Place dead end.

65th Place dead end.

Remember that this weekend, the M train will not run at Myrtle/Wyckoff, Seneca Avenue, Forest Avenue and Fresh Pond Road.

The New York City Transit’s Track Construction Division has scheduled the renewal of mainline track on the Myrtle Avenue line between Myrtle/Wyckoff and Metropolitan Ave.

The weekend closure will last until Monday, December 24.

From 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays, the MTA will be doing preparatory work. The track replacement phase begins at 10 p.m. Friday, working continuously until 5 a.m. on Monday morning.

NYCT will stage a mobile crane adjacent to the track structure to hoist and lower track panels and materials. The crane will be located at 65th Place, between 68th Avenue and the dead end, shown above.

Flagging and traffic devices will be used for public safety, and parking will be restricted at the street crane location.

Here’s a note from NYCT:

We ask neighbors to refrain from parking their vehicles towards the end of the dead end where the crew will be working. Parking will be restricted only on the side of Mafera Playground, but our crews will allow residents to continue to park on the residential portion of the street.
