CONCOURSE — Service on the 2, 3 and 5 trains will be disrupted from Friday through the weekend in the first part of a three-weekend construction project at the 149th Street-Grand Concourse station.

No 2 trains will run between 3rd Avenue-149th Street in The Bronx and 96th Street in Manhattan. Instead, local and non-stop shuttle buses will operate between those stops.

The 2 train will run in two sections during this time — one from 241st Street to the 3rd-Avenue-149th Street station and one from 96th Street to Flatbush Avenue.

All 3 train service will be suspended.

Instead, the 2 train will make all 3 train stops between 96th Street and Franklin Avenue and the 4 will make all 3 station stops between Franklin Avenue and New Lots Avenue. A shuttle bus will run between 96th Street and 148th Street.

The 5 train will not run between East 180th Street and 149th Street-Grand Concourse.

Instead, a shuttle bus will run between 3rd Avenue-149th Street and 149th Street-Grand Concourse.

The 5 train will run in two sections during this time — between Dyre Avenue and East 180th Street and, at 20-minute intervals, between 149th Street-Grand Concourse and Bowling Green.

The work will continue on the weekends of March 1-4 and March 8-11.

In addition to the 149th Street-Grand Concourse station improvement project, MTA workers will be doing track maintenance at 96th Street and tunnel lighting work in the Harlem River Tube on these weekends.
