With the R and G lines back at full service, the MTA is setting its sights on the next round of repairs to subway tunnels damaged by floodwaters during Hurricane Sandy.

A source told NY1 that weekend repairs to the Cranberry Tube, which carries A and C trains between Brooklyn and Manhattan, will start in the first part of 2015.

The tube, which 230,000 commuters travel daily through, was flooded by more than a million gallons of saltwater during the storm nearly two years ago.

During the weekend outages, the A and C will run along the F line between Jay Street/Metrotech and West Fourth Street.

And once that job is done, the MTA expects to go to do weekend repairs on the 53rd Street tube that carries the E and M trains in the second half of 2015.
