ntrain-250x2501Nov. 17, 2014 By Michael Florio

Overnight service on the N and R lines will be disrupted this week as the MTA conducts overnight work on these lines.

The work, which is part of NYC Transits’ FASTRACK program, will take place for four consecutive nights this week (starting tonight) through Friday morning—from 10 pm to 5 am.

Due to the work, the N-train will not be making any stops in Manhattan during those hours. In Queens it will run from Ditmars Blvd to Queensboro Plaza—making all the usual stops.

A recommended alternative route is transferring to the 7 train at Queensboro Plaza.

Meanwhile, the R train will not be operating in Manhattan or Queens during the 10 pm-5 am period this week.

The last R train to Bay Ridge-95 St leaves Forest Hills-71 Av at about 9:15 p.m. The last R train to Forest Hills-71 Av leaves Bay Ridge-95 St at about 9:20 p.m.

R train service will then resume in the morning.
