MTA's Fastrack maintenance program will disrupt subway service in Queens overnight this week.

The MTA’s Fastrack late-night repair and maintenance program will return to the E, F, M and R lines in Manhattan and Queens the next two weeks, causing disruptions on all four subway lines.

The disruptions will take place on four consecutive weeknights this upcoming week from Monday, March 30, through Thursday, April 2; and the following week from Monday, April 6 through early Friday morning, April 10, at the same time. All service changes will take place from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. the next morning.

During the disruptions, E trains will only operate in Queens between Jamaica Center and 74th Street-Roosevelt Avenue. Meanwhile, F trains will operate in two sections: between Jamaica-179th Street and 74th Street-Roosevelt Avenue; and between 21st Street-Queensbridge and Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue.

M trains will end service early between Essex Street in Lower Manhattan and Forest Hills-71 Avenue. During the disruptions, M trains will operate shuttle service between Metropolitan Avenue in Middle Village and Myrtle Avenue-Broadway in Bushwick.

R trains will end service early between 36th Street in Brooklyn and Forest Hills-71 Avenue. The trains will operate shuttle service in Brooklyn only between 36th Street and 95th Street.

For alternate service between Manhattan and Queens, take the 7 train, available at the 74th Street-Roosevelt Avenue or Queensboro Plaza station. The N train is also available at Queensboro Plaza.

Free shuttle buses will also operate in place of trains in Queens between Queensboro Plaza and 74th Street-Roosevelt Avenue, stopping at all affected stations including Queens Plaza, 36th Street, Steinway Street, 46th Street, Northern Boulevard and 65th Street.

The MTA previously disrupted service on the Queens Boulevard local and express lines in November for Fastrack maintenance. Crews cleaned debris and made repairs to station and tunnel infrastructures, signal equipment, tracks and the third rail.
