MANHATTAN — Trains on the 1, 2 and 3 lines will be suspended from Midtown into Brooklyn starting Monday night so crews can fix up the tracks as part of the MTA's FASTRACK initiative.
Trains will stop running weeknights in both directions from 34th Street-Penn Station and Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., the MTA said.
The overnight suspensions will continue through Oct. 20 and the disruptions will resume again between Oct. 23 and 27, the MTA said.
"FASTRACK enables workers to do more in less time because it effectively allows us to consolidate maintenance forces in a concentrated area and perform proactive maintenance," said MTA senior vice president Wynton Habersham.
Late-night riders can take the A, C, E, N, Q, R or W lines, officials said.
For service to Flatbush Avenue-Brooklyn College take the 5 train, the MTA said.
Free shuttle bus services will be provided between the Harlem-148 Street and 135 Street stations.
The N, Q, R and W lines are the next to face FASTRACK suspensions which will go from Nov. 6 through Nov. 10 and again from Nov. 13 through Nov. 17.
