Man, can LIC subway riders catch a break? On top of the 7 train weekend suspensions, the MTA will shut down G Train service between Long Island City and Nassau Avenue for five straight weeks this summer. The shutdown dates span between July 6th to September 1st. LIC Post reports, “The MTA said that it needs to shut down service in order to repair damage caused by Superstorm Sandy. The tunnel that connects Long Island City with Greenpoint was flooded with 3 million gallons of salt water at the height of the storm, according to the MTA.” The MTA plans to provide shuttle service during the five-week period.
