The Metropolitan Transportation Authority's "Fastrack" maintenance and repair program returns to the N and R lines in Brooklyn this week.

Starting Monday night and for the following three nights, N and R service will be suspended in both directions between 95th Street and 36th Street.

The N train will be re-routed to the D line between Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue and 36th Street.

R service between 71st Avenue in Queens and 36th Street in Brooklyn will end at the regularly scheduled time.

The MTA will provide free shuttle buses and special N shuttle trains.

The work runs each night from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. and is set to wrap up Friday morning.
