Overnight Repairs To Cause Service Disruptions On Sixth Avenue Subway Lines
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Straphangers can expect major subway disruptions in Manhattan starting Monday night as the Metropolitan Transportation Authority begins another round of its FASTRACK program.
The Sixth Avenue B,D, F and M lines will be shut down between 57th and West 4th Streets from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. for four consecutive nights this week.

The planned work will result in a number of service changes, including no B, D, F, and M service at the following 6th Avenue stations: 14 Street, 23 Street, 34 Street-Herald Square, 42 Street-Bryant Park, 47-50 Streets, and 57 Street.
D and F trains will be rerouted and B and M service will end earlier in Manhattan.
The MTA has done similar shutdowns on the 1, 2 , and 3 and 4, 5, and 6 lines. Crews repaired platforms, scraped peeling paint, installed new lighting, cleaned tracks, repaired defects and conducted critical inspections and repairs of signals and switches.
Officials said the overnight weekday work helps maintenance crews accomplish two months worth of work in less time.
