Green and Orange Line Service Expected to Return Monday Morning
Posted on June 25, 2022
Due to the ongoing support column incident at the private Government Center Garage project, for the rest of the weekend, Orange Line service will remain suspended between Back Bay and North Station with riders encouraged to use Green Line service between Copley and Government Center stations, and Green Line service will continue to be replaced with shuttle bus service between Lechmere and Government Center stations. The MBTA is working toward resuming regular Orange and Green Line services as soon as is safely possible, and is aiming to resume regular service during the morning hours on Monday, June 27, 2022, if deemed safe by internal and third party engineers and safety experts.
The MBTA continues to provide assistance to the developer of the private Government Center Garage in the recovery effort, accommodating all efforts for the developer to have access to the support columns and to reinforce the structures. Repair work continues to be underway and the MBTA will continue to support HYM’s contractors by delivering workers and materials to the site. Structural engineers and safety experts are also on scene monitoring the site, performing intensive examinations and assessments of the infrastructure above and below the surface at Haymarket. These teams are and will be ready to assess their work to ensure the safety of all infrastructure before allowing MBTA service to resume. The MBTA will continue to share updates as more information becomes available.
Extra MBTA personnel and Transit Ambassadors continue to be on hand to assist customers. Additional accessibility vans are also available – interested riders should ask MBTA personnel for information.
