There will be changes on three subway lines overnight this week.

Starting tonight, there will be service disruptions on the “N,” “Q” and “R” trains between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m, as part of the MTA’s Fastrack maintenance program. The changes will last until Friday, February 1.

There will only be “N” service in Brooklyn and Queens, and the line will operate in two sections between Ditmars Boulevard and Queensboro Plaza, and between Stillwell Avenue and Jay Street-MetroTech.

After DeKalb Avenue, “Q” Manhattan-bound trains will run on the “D” line to 47-50th Streets, then to the 57 Street “F” station. Coney Island-bound “Q” trains will originate at the 57th Street “F” station then run via the “D” train to Brooklyn. Regular Coney Island-bound service resumes at DeKalb Avenue.

“R” train service will end early in Manhattan and Queens, with the last 95th Street-bound “R” train leaving 71st Avenue, and the last 71st Avenue-bound train leaving 95 Street at about 9:20 p.m. In Brooklyn, shuttle service between 36 Street and 95 Street will start early.
