The MTA's FASTRACK program will shut down the B, D, F and M lines overnight this week.

There will be no service from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. between between West 4th Street and West 57th Street in both directions.

Workers will be repairing, cleaning and doing other maintenance on the tracks through Friday.

The MTA says the complete shutdowns allow them to work faster, safer and cheaper.
