NEW YORK CITY — Subway travel will be tricky over Memorial Day weekend, with 11 lines facing service changes.

The disruptions will particularly affect Williamsburg and Bushwick, as the L train will not run between Brooklyn and Manhattan all weekend, the MTA said.

From Friday through Monday, construction work and track maintenance will have an impact on the 2, 4, 5, A, C, D, E, F, L, M and N lines, the MTA said.

Here the breakdown by line:

2 Train: Trains will run in two sections due to track panel installation from 3:45 a.m. Saturday to 10 p.m. Monday. The first section will run from Flatbush Avenue to East 180th and the second will run between East 180th Street and 241st Street.

Northbound 2 Trains will also be rerouted to Dyre Avenue at East 180th Street.

4 Train: Downtown trains will skip 176th Street, Mt. Eden Avenue, 170th Street, 167th Street and 161st Street from 5:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.

5 Train: The 5 line will be suspended from 3:45 a.m. Saturday to 10 p.m. Monday because of track panel installation. For service between Dyre Avenue and 149th Street-Grand Concourse you can take the 2 train. From 149th Street to Bowling Green, you can take the 4.

A Train: Downtown A trains will run express from 59th Street to Canal Street from 11:45 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights and from 11:45 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. Tuesday.

C Train: Downtown trains will run express from 59th Street to Canal Street from 6:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday through Monday. 

E Train: World Trade Center-bound trains will run express from 34th Street to Canal Street from 11:45 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Tuesday.

L Train: There will be no L service between 8th Avenue and Lorimer Street from 11:30 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Tuesday because of a pump replacement at Third Avenue. The M14 bus will provide crosstown service in Manhattan and people trying to get from Brooklyn to Manhattan can take the J or M trains. A free shuttle bus will also operate.

M Train: Trains will run to and from the 57th Street F Train station from 6 a.m. to midnight Saturday and 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday and Monday, to make up for the lack of L service.
