Why We're Disrupting Service

MassDOT is performing critical repair work on Squires Bridge on Route 28. The bridge crosses over GL Union Branch, and MassDOT crews need access to the Green Line right of way to complete these repairs.

As HYM continues working on demolishing the Government Center Garage, we have planned the service disruption between North Station and Government Center to allow the work to take place safely.
