MANHATTAN — The A, C and E lines will be rerouted between Midtown and Downtown Brooklyn next week for maintenance work.

The trains will run on other lines from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday through Friday so MTA workers can make repairs to signals, rails and stations, the agency said.

A trains will be rerouted via the D line both directions between Columbus Circle and Herald Square, then via the F line in both directions from Herald Square to the Jay Street-MetroTech station.

E trains will run via the M line in both directions between the Fifth Avenue-53rd Street station and Herald Square, then via the F line between the 34th Street and Second Avenue stations, where they will terminate.

C service will end early throughout the week.

The MTA is advising straphangers to use the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, D and F lines for travel around Manhattan instead. 

“FASTRACK has proven to have a significant impact on decreasing delays — both in terms of consolidating maintenance forces in a concentrated area and in terms of proactive maintenance that improves service delivery,” said Wynton Habersham, the MTA’s senior vice president for the Department of Subways.

Workers scraped and cleaned more than 30,000 feet of track and installed 20 new rails during the MTA’s last FASTRACK operation on the Eighth Avenue line in August 2014.

The next operation will be on the L train between Myrtle-Wyckoff Avenue and Bedford Avenue from Aug. 1 to Aug. 5 and Aug. 8 to Aug. 12.
