Subway riders on the East Side are happy to be returning to normal overnight service after the final night of "Fastrack" construction on the Lexington Aveneu line.

Service on the the 4, 5 and 6 lines was suspended between Grand Central and Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. all week long.

It was part of the MTA's Fastrack program, in which hundreds of workers tackle an entire project in a short amount of time.

The tracks reopened Friday morning.

The next Fastrack affects the 7th Avenue 1, 2 and 3 lines February 13 through February 17.

Work on the 6th Avenue B, D and F lines occurs February 27 through March 2.

Then, the 8th Avenue A, C and E lines will be shut down March 12 through March 16.
