Due to ongoing repair work, the A and C trains will be rerouted over the F line between Jay Street-Metrotech and West 4th Street for 40 nonconsecutive weekends over the next 16 months, the Daily News reports.

Guhhhhhhh.

The Cranberry Tube, the tunnel under the East River that carries the A and C trains, was flooded with saltwater during Hurricane Sandy and badly damaged. Repair work from that storm will still be going on in 2016. So the tunnel is being closed for a good reason, but it’s still a pain.

The closures will start July 11. The trains will be rerouted 12 weekends between then and November 14. So if you’re taking the A train to Lower Manhattan on a weekend anytime in the near future, make sure you check MTA.info. You don’t want to be on a train that all of a sudden is going to an entirely different place than where you were expecting. Here’s a free idea for whoever cares to take it: make an “Is the L train fucked“-style app for the weekend A and C trains. The F train will not be affected, and will continue to run when it feels like running.
