Normally in this space, we write about the hassles and headaches of weekend trackwork. But, hey, Irene is coming, so the MTA has not only canceled all maintenance for this weekend, but also all service after noon on Saturday.

Check for the latest news, but that’s what we have as of 3 pm on Friday.

SB from Bushwick says:
The MTA site is mum about any planned changes as well. Was truth sacrificed for a mediocre headline?

Cheryl from Fort Greene says:
Part of an e-mail I received from the MTA yesterday at 5 pm regarding service changes this weekend:

In anticipation of the arrival of Hurricane Irene:
• Planned service changes for scheduled maintenance this weekend, late Friday, August 26 to early Monday, August 29, are cancelled.

So I'm assuming the non-standard service changes at least (2,3,A,C,G, and Q) are cancelled.
