The MTA will be shutting down the A train service at Washington Heights and Inwood stops for four nights this week as part of the FASTRACK repair program.

There will be no trains between 207 Street and 168 Street from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., Monday to Friday. Straphangers can take the No. 1 train or the M4 bus as an alternative.

During those hours, crews will be repairing tracks and signals. The MTA said the program has sped up several repair and renovation projects since its launch a year and a half ago.
