Tram Outage Starting Early 6/9 with Ending Later 6/19

The Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation issued an advisory this morning that the planned tram outage scheduled for June 10th through June 17th will commence with an early shutdown of the tram on June 9th at 10:00pm.

The advisory also states that the tram will not resume on June 17th but at 6:00 am on Thursday, June 19th.

According to the advisory the schedule change is necessary in order to perform the track ropes relocation maintenance.

According to the two most recent RIOC columns published in the Main Street WIRE and earlier service advisories the shutdown was only to extend through June 17th.

  1. I'm puzzled to see that those outages (or mandatory work) don't seems to bother people.
    I was planning moving to the Island but in the light of the F train not being very reliable, and the Tram shutdown in 2009 for severals months...

    I wonder...
