Home Service Advisories A long weekend of work as FASTRACK returns

A long weekend of work as FASTRACK returns

by Benjamin Kabak

Ah, the last gasp of the unofficial summer, as the city empties a bit and we enjoy a three-day weekend. The MTA is using the long weekend to get some extra work in, and on Monday night, everyone’s favorite work treatment program makes its return to the East Side. FASTRACK hits the Lexington Ave. IRT but only for three nights as the 4/5/6 will not run between 42nd St. and Atlantic Ave. on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights only. The work doesn’t continue into Thursday this week because Madonna’s taking the stage at Yankee Stadium on Thursday, and we can’t leave her fans stranded.

The FASTRACK map is above, and the regular weekend service is below. I’m out of town for the long weekend so you’ll see me again on Monday night.
