It’s finally Friday — congrats on making it through another week! But along with the long-awaited end of the workweek comes the MTA’s weekend work.

Here’s some of what to expect from your subway system this weekend:

• 1/2

From 11:45 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Monday, uptown 1 and 2 trains will run express from Times Square-42nd Street to 72nd Street for continuing rail and track replacements.

• 2/3

During that same timeframe, 2 and 3 service will be suspended in Brooklyn for Hurricane Sandy recovery work in the Clark Street Tunnel.

3 service will be replaced by the 4 train, which will run local to Crown Heights-Utica Avenue, and there will be free shuttle buses from there to New Lots Avenue.

5 trains, also running local, will extend to Flatbush Avenue-Brooklyn College to replace 2 service.

Since there will not be service at the Clark Street and Hoyt Street stations, straphangers can transfer to the N, Q or R at Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center.

In Manhattan, 2 trains will run from the Bronx to South Ferry, going local from Penn Station to South Ferry. 3 trains will operate between Harlem-148th Street and 14th Street.
