April 8, 2013 3:23:27 AM PDT
Subway riders in the Bronx can expect delays on the D train beginning Monday night, due to the MTA's FASTRACK maintenance and repair program.

The MTA's FASTRACK construction program means there will be no service in both directions between 205th Street and 161st Street near Yankee Stadium.

There are no Yankee home games scheduled during those four nights.

The shutdown will last each weeknight from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. Friday.

Straphangers can take a No. 4 train as an alternate.

There will be no D service at 205th Street, Bedford Park Blvd, Kingsbridge Road, Fordham Road, 182nd-183rd Sts, Tremont Avenue, 174th-175th Sts, 170th Street and 167th Street.

Travel alternatives:
  • Take 4 service to and from nearby stations.
  • Transfer between D and 4 trains at 161st Street-Yankee Stadium.
  • Free shuttle buses provide connection service between the 205th Street D and the Mosholu Parkway 4 stations only
  • For service from 155th Street, take a Coney Island-bound D train one stop to 145th Street and transfer to a Bronx-bound D
  • For service to 155th Street, take the Bronx-bound D to 161st Street-Yankee Stadium and transfer to a Coney Island-bound D.
