Commuters who ride the No. 7 train will need to find another way to get from Manhattan to Queens in the coming weeks after another round of service suspensions for the line were announced by the MTA.

The line, which is currently undergoing a $550 million face-lift, won't offer service between Times Square and Queensboro Plaza intermittently for 13 weekends between late February and mid-July, the MTA said Thursday.

Several other weekend changes along other parts of the line have also been announced as workers replace old signaling equipment.

During the suspensions, riders can take free shuttle buses at affected stations to go to Queensboro Plaza, where they can take an N or Q train. Otherwise, they should take the E, F, and N trains servicing Queens.

More details about the suspensions can be found here.
