NEW YORK CITY — Subway repair work will knock out N, Q and R train service at Manhattan stations for four consecutive weeknights starting April 15.
The disruptions are part of the MTA's FASTRACK program, which aims to speed construction and subway maintenance by shuttering stations overnight.
N trains will run only in Queens and Brooklyn between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. during the weeknights. Over the same span, Q trains will run in Brooklyn and will be rerouted along the D line in Manhattan, while R service will end early in Manhattan and Queens (with R shuttle service overnight between 95th Street and 36th Street).
Commuters are advised of the following travel alternatives:
- In Queens, take the M (or E local) instead of the R.
- Take the 7 for service between Queens and Manhattan.
- In Manhattan, use nearby stations on the Eighth Avenue (A, E), Seventh Avenue (1, 2), Sixth Avenue Avenue (D, F) and Lexington Avenue (4, 6) lines.
- Take the 2, 4, D, F or Q between Manhattan and Brooklyn.
- N trains make local R stops between Jay Street-MetroTech and 36th Street.
More information on the N, Q and R train service changes can be found on the MTA's website.
