Today’s news:

Some J train service shutdown overnight for maintenance

TimesLedger Newspapers

It’s the Lower East Side’s turn for the MTA’s Fastrack all-night subway maintenance service, which began at 10 p.m. Monday night for four consecutive nights and will involve passengers traveling to Queens.

The MTA says J trains will run between Jamaica Center in Queens and Delancey Street-Essex Street, the last stop. There will no J service at Broad Street, Fulton Street, Chambers Street, Canal Street and the Bowery stations from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. for four consecutive weeknights from Monday to 5 a.m. Friday morning.

The MTA says straphangers should take the No. 4, No. 6 or A trains at nearby stations instead.

The MTA offers these alternatives:

F, No. 4 and No. 6 trains provide connecting service between J trains at Delancey Street-Essex Sreet and Lower Manhattan.

Transfer between F and J trains at Delancey Street-Essex Street.

Transfer between F and No. 4 or No. 6 trains at Bleecker Street-Broadway/Lafayette Street.

Riders should also consider taking the A or E to and from Lower Manhattan.

A trains at Fulton Street connect with J trains at Broadway Junction.

E trains at World Trade Center connect with J trains at Sutphin Blvd-Archer Avenue.

Fastrack was introduced in January 2012, devoting four straight weeknights to perform maintenance work more efficiently and faster in tunnels, stations and tracks.
