Lakeshore West to be shut down for weekend travel

MTA officials announced on Wednesday that Lakeshore West will be shut down for weekend travel, with part of it closed both ways from Sept. 8-10.

No GO trains will run on Lakeshore West between 6:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, and Sunday from 5 p.m. to 6:30 a.m.

On Sunday, Lakeshore West will be closed both ways from 1 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Commuters must take No. 7 trains to and from Woodfield station on Lake Shore West. They can transfer to Metro North rail service from Hunter’s Point and South Ferry stations.

Tickets may be refunded or exchanged for other routes. R-ride buses will be available to transport workers who work on the bridge to and from the bridge on Saturday and Sunday.

Concerned commuters can sign up for alerts about planned service changes here.

The MTA also said in a news release that it is working to resolve the recent shutdown of the tracks south of the Myrtle Avenue station on the No. 1 line during its annual track inspection. The agency is working with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to make sure another planned inspection at this location occurs this coming week. “Due to anticipated delays, the MTA is recommending that crews complete their scheduled inspection and maintenance work on the same week as previous weeks,” the MTA said.
