MANHATTAN — The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is canceling most weekend subway work because of an impending snowstorm, the agency announced Friday.

The storm could drop 2 inches of snow in New York City from late Friday night into early Saturday afternoon.

Most trains will run on regular weekend schedules, except for trains on the L, 1, 2 and 7 lines.

The service changes that are still moving forward — between 12:01 a.m. Saturday and 5 a.m. Monday — include no L trains between Lorimer Street and Broadway Junction, no 7 trains between Times Square-42nd Street and Queensboro Plaza, and uptown 1 trains running express between Chambers and 14th streets.

Also, uptown 2 trains will run express between Chambers and 14th streets early Saturday, Sunday and Monday mornings.

Long-term service changes will also remain in effect, including projects at the Dyckman Street station on the 1; the Smith-9 Streets station, 15 Street-Prospect Park station and Fort Hamilton Parkway station on the F/G; and the Court Square station on the 7.
