From 6 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. on weekdays, the R will run in two sections, from Forest Hills-71st Street in Queens to Whitehall Street in Manhattan, and from Court Street to Bay Ridge-95th Street in Brooklyn. The estimated 65,000 daily riders affected will be accommodated by trains running between Brooklyn and Manhattan on the 2/3/4/5/A/B/C/D/F/N and Q lines, all of which are accessible from the R train’s final four stations in Brooklyn.
From 6 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, the R will be re-routed over the Manhattan Bridge serving all stations with the exception of Court Street and Jay-Street-MetroTech in Brooklyn and the City Hall, Cortlandt, Rector, and Whitehall Street stations in Lower Manhattan.
The N, which is normally re-routed through the tunnel to replace the R, will instead continue to operate over the Manhattan Bridge at all times.
