Green Line D Track and Signal Replacement Public Meeting (Newton)

Meeting Info

Date: September 6, 2018 at 6 PM

Location: Newton Free Library, Druker Auditorium • 330 Homer St • Newton, MA

Attendees: General Public

Event Description

The MBTA's project to replace 25,000 feet of track and 6.5 miles of signal infrastructure on the Green Line D branch will begin in October. This project is an MBTA initiative to bring the Green Line track and signal systems into a state of good repair. New tracks and a modernized signal system will help improve the reliability of Green Line operations and result in fewer delays between Beaconsfield and Riverside stations. Construction is scheduled to begin in October and continue through December 2020.

From October to December 2018 (and again in 2019 and 2020), bus shuttle will replace Green Line D branch service between Brookline Hills and Riverside on Sundays through Thursdays, starting at 9 PM. Additionally, over 15 weekends in 2019 and 2020, bus shuttles will replace train service on portions of the D branch all day Saturday and Sunday.

At these meetings, the MBTA and the project team will:

  • Present the construction phasing and schedule
  • Discuss the noise impacts and mitigation measures
  • Review the plans for each station
  • Answer questions from the public
