MANHATTAN — There will be no A or D service in upper Manhattan for four consecutive nights next week while the MTA does repair work.

Under the MTA's Fastrack program, service completely shuts down a subway line to help make MTA maintenance work more efficient and safe. The agency chooses lines where there is alternative subway service, according to their website.

The A will not run between 59th Street and Inwood-207th Street and there will be no D service between 59th Street and 161st Street-Yankee Stadium from 10 p.m. to 5 am. Nov. 18 through Nov. 22.

Local B and C service will also end early each night.

Riders can take the nearby 1, 2 or 4 lines as an alternative or the M4, Bx12 or Bx19 buses.

There will also be free shuttle bus service.

The A will run between Lefferts Boulevard or Far Rockaway and 59th Street during the Fastrack work.

D service will operate in two sections, between 205th Street and 161st Street-Yankee Stadium and between 59th Street and Stillwell Avenue.

A riders can take the 1 for service between Midtown and Washington Heights.

For those going to The Bronx on the D, straphangers can take the 2 or 4 from Midtown.

The 42nd Street shuttle will also run through the night.
