For the next five weeks, straphangers along a stretch of the G train will have to find another way around.
Starting at 10:30 p.m. Friday, the G will stop running between Court Square and Nassau Avenue so crews can fix equipment damaged by Hurricane Sandy.
Last year, the work disrupted G train service for 12 weekends.
But the Metropolitan Transportation Authority says a round-the-clock shutdown is needed this time.
Riders we spoke with say they understand why the work is necessary, but they're still not looking forward to it.
"I think it's going to be harder to get to work now," said one rider.
"Some of the jobs I have to be in Greenpoint by 6 a.m., so I think it's gonna be like a 3 a.m. wake-up for me and maybe try to catch a cab somewhere," said another rider.
"Well if they repair it well enough and there's no problems afterwards I'll be happy. But if it's not successful afterwards it won't be worth the cost," said another.
Free shuttle buses will run to and from the closed stations.
Those stations are set to reopen on September 2.
