Today’s news:

What the L?!

The Brooklyn Paper

The L train is down! Again! But the G is running normally — or at least, as normally as the Ghost Train ever runs. Read on for all the news that affects your weekend commute.

All changes are Saturday, Oct. 8 at 12:01 am to Monday, Oct. 10 at 5 am unless otherwise noted:

2: No trains between Franklin and Flatbush avenues. Take the shuttle bus instead.

D: Manhattan-bound trains run on the N from Stillwell Avenue to 36th Street. Stillwell Avenue-bound trains skip 71st Street (all times).

F: All trains skip Smith-Ninth Street (all times).

L: No trains between Eighth Avenue in Manhattan and Broadway Junction. Take the M train or a shuttle bus instead.

Q: Stillwell Avenue-bound trains skip Avenue U and Neck Road.
