Due to the necessary replacement of railroad ties on the Worcester Line between Wellesley Farms & Westborough, weekday Worcester Line trains may experience delays of 5-15 minutes in both directions between 8:30 am and 4:00 pm.

Additionally, peak hour trains may see minor delays due to speed restrictions around construction zones. Replacement of railroad ties is expected to be completed by the first week of June.
