FASTRACK repairs affecting R line in Bay Ridge

MTA maintenance crews are starting FASTRACK repairs along the R line in Bay Ridge and Sunset Park.



As of Monday night, R trains will not make stops between the 36th Street and 95th Street stations. The work will occur weeknights from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Aug. 7.



The MTA says free shuttle buses are available to riders during the maintenance period.



The agency says that during the last FASTRACK along the Fourth Avenue corridor in 2014, workers disposed of 1,700 pounds of garbage, fixed leaks and replaced track rails.
