NEW YORK CITY Construction and maintenance on eleven subway lines is expected to affect travel plans through the weekend.

Disruptions on the 4, 5, 6, 7, A, D, E, F, G, N, and R will begin late Friday and last until early Monday, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said.  

Here's a look at weekend travel line by line:

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, starting at 11:45 p.m., the 4 train will run express between Grand Central-42nd Street and 14th Street-Union Square, while downtown 6 trains will run express between Grand Central and Union Square for the entire weekend due to signal work.

The 6 train will also continue to skip Middletown Road and Castle Hill Avenue in the Bronx in both directions through May 2014, due to station renewal work.

From 6 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. Saturday and from 8 a.m. to 11:30 p.m Sunday, the 5 train will run every 20 minutes between Dyre Avenue and Bowling Green, also due to signal work.

From 5:30 a.m. Saturday to 10 p.m. Sunday, there will be no A train between Howard Beach-JFK Airport and Far Rockaway/Rockaway Park due to track panel work and maintenance.

From 12 a.m. Saturday to 5 a.m. Monday, Brooklyn-bound A trains and Coney Island-bound D trains will run local from 125th Street to 59th Street-Columbus Circle due to track tie renewal.

From 12:30 a.m. Saturday to 5 a.m. Monday, E trains will run local in both directions between Queens Plaza and Forrest Hills-71st Avenue due to signal modernization.

From 9:45 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday, Jamaica-bound F trains will be rerouted via the M line from 47th-50th Streets to Queens Plaza, due to work on the Second Avenue subway project. From 12:30 a.m. Saturday to 5 a.m. Monday, Jamaica-bound F trains will also run local from Queens Plaza to Forest Hills-71st Avenue, and Coney Island-bound F trains will run local from Forest Hills-71st Avenue to 21st Street-Queensbridge.

From 11:45 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday, Jamaica-bound F trains will run express from Church Avenue to Smith-9th Streets.

From 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday, Q service is extended to and from Ditmars Boulevard due to 7 train suspension between Manhattan and Queens.

Manhattan-bound Q platforms at Cortelyou Road, Beverly Road and Parkside Avenue in Brooklyn will remain close until December, due to station work.
