The MTA will temporarily close the tunnel between Queens and Manhattan that carries the E and M trains starting the day after Christmas, the agency announced.
The M train will be suspended while the E train will run on the F line between Roosevelt Avenue and West Fourth Street so MTA workers can get in, make extensive reports and get out, the MTA said. The repairs are part of the city’s Subway Action Plan.
The service changes are in effect beginning at 5 a.m. Dec. 26 all the way to the morning of New Year’s Eve. Full service will be restored by 8 a.m. Dec. 31.
Repairs include third rail and track replacement and new signal wiring.
