BROOKLYN — Overnight repairs to the G line this week from Bedford-Nostrand Avenues to Church Avenue have been partially suspended due to a dangerous cold front that's predicted to hit the city with subzero temperatures, according to the MTA.

The critical maintenance, part of the MTA's FASTRACK program, was originally set to run from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. from Monday night until early Friday morning.

But Monday and Tuesday nights' work has been cancelled, the state authority announced Monday morning. Wind chills are set to bring the temperature down to an estimated -8 degrees.

A shuttle bus service will replace the train between Bedford-Nostrand Avenues and Jay Street-Metrotech on Wednesday and Thursday nights, with F train service running from Jay Street to Church Avenue, according to the MTA.

The next FASTRACK service will be on the 1 line between 96th St. and Dyckman St. starting next Monday evening and ending early next Friday, according to the MTA.
