WASHINGTON HEIGHTS — A, B, C and D train service will shut down for overnight repairs in upper Manhattan next week, MTA officials said.

From Monday through Friday,  A trains will not run in either direction between 59th Street and 207th Street from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night, as part of MTA's Fastrack repairs program. D trains will not operate between 59th Street and 161st Street-Yankee Stadium.

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

Riders are encouraged to take the 1 train for service to Washington Heights and Inwood, and the 2 or 4 trains for service to The Bronx. In addition, Bx12 buses will run between the 207th Street A and 1 train stations, and Bx19 buses will run between The Bronx and the 145th Street 1 and A, B, C, D stations.

Free shuttle buses will connect the missed stops as well. 

The MTA's Fastrack program shuts down service to train lines overnight while crews make repairs on a condensed schedule.
