The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is currently on its fourth section of overnight Fastrack work, this time completely stopping service on major sections of the A/C/E lines from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. The A, C and E trains will be completely suspended in both directions from Columbus Circle in Manhattan to Jay Street/MetroTech in Brooklyn for four consecutive weeknights. Regular overnight service will resume Friday morning at 5 a.m. The trains will run alternate routes, including the A train on the D line between 59th Street/Columbus Circle and 47th/50th Streets stations and then on the F line to Jay Street in Brooklyn. The overnight closures allow MTA workers to complete a significant number of maintenance projects without stopping for trains on the tracks or people in the stations. The next Fastrack overnight closure will return to the 1/2/3 lines from 34th Street-Penn Station to Atlantic Avenue for four nights beginning Monday, April 9. In addition, JFK Airport’s AirTrain will suspend most of its route overnights starting tonight from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. due to terminal construction. At nights, AirTrain JFK will operate only between Jamaica Station and Federal Circle Station with free shuttle buses replacing the rest of the route. The AirTrain disruption will continue through May 11.
