Longfellow Bridge Closures

Fall 2017/Winter 2018


For some weekends during fall 2017 and winter 2018, bus shuttles will replace Red Line service on the Longfellow Bridge, from Kendall/MIT to Park Street stations. The bridge will be closed to finish track replacements for trains.

Soon, you can expect a smoother, faster ride across the Longfellow on the Red Line.

When to Expect Closures

Two weekends are expected for the spring of 2018. Dates will be added here as they are confirmed.

Potential Schedule Changes

On some scheduled weekends, trains may run normally due to inclement weather, construction delays, or snow removal.

Stay up to date by checking Red Line service alerts or signing up for T-Alerts.

How Your Journey Will Be Affected

The trip will take about 15 minutes from Kendall to Park Street:

  • 8 minutes from Kendall to Charles/MGH 
  • 7 minutes from Charles/MGH to Park Street
