Subway riders in Queens may need to give themselves extra time to make it into Manhattan, due to a big MTA project starting this weekend.
Maintenance on the Queens Boulevard Line will take the Manhattan-bound E and F local track out of service.
That means any Manhattan-bound straphangers boarding at local stations between the Sutphin Boulevard F station and the 75th Avenue E and F stations must take a train further into Queens before switching to a Manhattan-bound train at a non-affected station.
The agency says the delay should add about 10 minutes to the trip.
The changes will be in effect through 5 a.m. on Monday, April 16, as the MTA replaces track and support equipment.
