The 7 train won’t run regularly for multiple weekends this fall, reports Queens Courier. This weekend you’re safe, but on the weekends of October 12th to 13th, October 19th to 20th, October 26th to 27th, November 9th to 10th and November 23rd to 24th, there will be no service between Times Square-42nd Street and Queensboro Plaza from 12:01 am on Saturday to 5 am on Monday. A free shuttle will run between the Vernon-Jackson and Queensboro Plaza stops, and the MTA plans to increase Astoria service. The shutdowns are due to service maintenance in the Steinway Tunnel, which will wrap in 2016. Unfortunately, more weekend shutdowns for the 7 train are coming in early 2014.
