NEW YORK — Subway service on the Sixth Avenue B, D, F and M lines will be suspended overnight this week for ongoing track work, the MTA announced.

The stations between 14th Street and 57th Street will be closed Monday through Friday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. for maintenance work, the authority announced. 

D and F trains will be rerouted, and B and M service will end early in Manhattan. Q service will be extended.

Subway passengers should expect to add about 20 minutes to their usual travel times, according to the MTA. 

D Trains
Between 205th Street and the Second Avenue F station, D trains will operate via the C line between 59th Street-Columbus Circle and West Fourth Street. D trains will also operate via the F line to and from Second Avenue, the last stop.

Between Stillwell Avenue and the Whitehall Street R station, D trains will operate via the R route between 36th Street and Whitehall Street, the last stop.

F Trains
F trains will run via the E line between West Fourth Street and Roosevelt Avenue in both directions. For service to Lexington Avenue/63rd Street, Roosevelt Island and 21st Street-Queensbridge, riders should take the Q train.

Q Trains
Q service will be extended to 21st Street-Queensbridge via the F line after 57th Street-7th Avenue. Trains run to/from Lexington Avenue/63rd Street, Roosevelt Island and 21st Street-Queensbridge, the last stop. Coney Island-bound Q service originates at 21st Street-Queensbridge.

B and M Trains
Manhattan-bound service in Brooklyn and Queens ends at 9:30 p.m. Service in Manhattan is available until 10 p.m.

The service changes are a result of the MTA's FASTRACK program, which allows workers to perform subway maintenance without interruption from oncoming trains.
