If you’re a weekend rider of the 7 train, prepare for some longer commutes – much longer.

Here’s what the MTA said about the planned services changes,

In 2015, significant weekend work on three capital improvement projects on the 7 subways Line in Queens continues: installation of a new Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC) signal system; elevated track replacement and infrastructure work; and the reconstruction and fortification of the Steinway Tubes.

The majority of this work is scheduled over weekends when ridership is lower and gives our workers continuous, train-free access to the 7 subways Line. We are aware of the inconvenience these and other disruptions cause, and we appreciate your patience.

These projects will bring a modern, state-of-the-art signal system and reliable, resilient infrastructure upgrades to the7 subways Line.

And here’s the schedule:
