WASHINGTON HEIGHTS — Overnight commuters in Morningside Heights, Harlem, Washington Heights and Inwood will need to make alternate plans next week, as 1 train service shuts down for repairs.

FASTRACK repair work will knock out 1 trains between 96th and Dyckman streets from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. from March 24 to 28. Trains will operate in two sections during the week: from South Ferry and 96th Street and from 242nd Street to Dyckman Street. 

Trains on the 1 line above 96th Street will run on the 3 line to 148th Street during the overnight periods and will skip 145th Street in both directions. In addition, Downtown 1 trains will skip 207th Street.

Commuters are advised to take the neighboring A train or free shuttle buses that will run to the missed stops between 96th and 191st streets. Shuttle buses will also run on a loop between the A and 1 train stations at Dyckman Street. 

This is the second set of FASTRACK repairs on the northern Manhattan 1 line this year. In January, MTA teams cleaned more than 11,000 feet of track, painted 16,200 square feet of station surface area and maintained 140 escalators and elevators.
