No Manhattan Bound F Trains From Roosevelt Island This Weekend

You Tube video of arriving F Trains at Roosevelt Island

No Manhattan bound F Trains from Roosevelt Island this weekend. According to the MTA:
Manhattan-bound trains run on the V from Roosevelt Av to 47-50 Sts
Weekend, Mar 15 – 17, 12:01 AM Sat to 5 AM Mon

How does this affect my trip?
Trains skip 21 St-Queensbridge, Roosevelt Island, Lexington Av-63 St, and 57 St.

For service to these stations, take the F to 47-50 Sts and transfer to a Queens-bound F.

For service from these stations, take a Queens-bound F to Roosevelt Av and transfer to a Manhattan-bound F.

Why is service being changed?
We are making electrical improvements to ensure that trains continue
to operate safely along the F line.
RIOC President Shane forwards the latest information from the MTA regarding Roosevelt Island weekend subway disruptions.
Here is the most up-to-date information on F line diversions. Please

I guess Southbound means towards Manhattan and vice versa.

Are there any clues as to when this "work" will come to an end? I'm beginning to think it has to do with saving money by reducing the number of trains running.
