The power supply will be used for the two new Park Street Station elevators. The elevators will provide access to the Westbound Green Line trains from the street level and to the Red Line platform from the Westbound Green Line platform. Also, station tile work and other necessary Red Line maintenance will be performed throughout the diversion weekend.
