The MBTA is building a new, fully accessible Chelsea Commuter Rail station next to the final SL3 stop in Chelsea. When complete, the new station will connect the Newburyport/Rockport Commuter Rail Lines to the SL3, which began operating in April 2018.

Work began early in August and is expected to be completed in 2021. The current Chelsea Commuter Rail station, at Arlington Street in Chelsea, is not accessible to people with disabilities, and is inconvenient for transfers to other modes of transportation. The MBTA is investing $32 million to construct the new Chelsea Commuter Rail station, including full high-level platforms for boarding, canopies and benches, new sidewalks, security cameras, passenger assistance telephones, lighting, and more.

We invite you to attend a public meeting to learn more about this construction project and related impacts.
