Commuters looking to take the E and the F from Forest Hills to Jamaica will need to find another option for the next four weekends.
The MTA is shutting down the E and F lines between 71st-Continental Avenues in Forest Hills and Jamaica each weekend through Aug. 7, from Friday at 11 p.m. until the following Monday at 5 a.m.
The first weekend with E and F closures took place this past weekend. There are four weekends of closures left.
Free shuttle buses are operating in place of both lines and the Long Island Rail Road will also cross-honor Metro Cards for trips between Penn Station and either the Jamaica or Kew Gardens stations.
Each weekend, the E train will operate local service between 71st-Continental Avenues and World Trade Center, and the F train will provide local service between 71st-Continental Avenues and Stillwell Avenue in Brooklyn.
