MANHATTAN — Late night commuters looking to travel on the A, B, C and D lines will have to find another way, as the MTA will temporarily shut down service for overnight maintenance repairs for two weeks this month.

Starting Monday night, service will be suspended on the A train between 59th Street-Columbus Circle and Inwood-207th Street and on the D line between 59th Street- Columbus Circle and 161 Street-Yankee Stadium, as part of the MTA’s FASTRACK program, which shuts down sections of the subway line overnight to allow workers to fix maintenance issues.     

B and C train service will also be impacted and will be shut down early, as repairs take place, according to the MTA.

The shutdown will take place for four consecutive nights from July 10 to July 14 and July 17 to July 22 between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. 

Alternative routes will be available during the planned two-week shutdown.
