There will be no Long Island Rail Road service this weekend and next weekend between Jamaica, Queens, and Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn, the railroad said.
NYC Transit will cross-honor LIRR tickets at Jamaica and Atlantic Terminal for connections to the Q subway train, the railroad said.
Westbound riders to Atlantic Terminal should take an LIRR train to Penn Station, walk one block east to 34th Street/Herald Square, and take the Q, N, or R subway lines to Atlantic Terminal, the railroad said.
Eastbound riders can take the Q at Atlantic Terminal to 34th Street/Herald Square and pick up an LIRR train there, the railroad said.
Travelers destined for East New York should walk from the Broadway Junction subway station of the A and C stations, instead of changing to the L line, which will not be operating.
The railroad gave no estimate of any additional travel time. There are eight stations between Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn and 34th Street/Herald Square in Manhattan.
The shutdown Saturday and Sunday both weekends will allow for the installation of new signals near Atlantic Terminal, the LIRR said.
