Alternate Blue Line Service Options for April 25 to May 17
Updated on May 12, 2022
In April, crews will continue to work on the major infrastructure updates to the Blue Line Harbor Tunnel that began in 2020.
Building a Better T
As part of our $8 billion, 5-year capital investment plan, we're renovating stations, modernizing fare collection systems, upgrading services for our buses, subways, and ferries, and improving the accessibility of the entire system.
Blue Line Service Impacts
During the closure, shuttles will do the following:
- Run all day, every day
- Serve downtown stations in a one-way, inbound loop
- Drop off (but not pick up) riders at State station
- Not stop at Bowdoin station
Express shuttles will not stop at Maverick.
Silver Line Service
The Silver Line 3 can be used as an alternative at Airport station for service to downtown Boston. Riders at Logan Airport should take the Silver Line 1 to South Station for service to downtown Boston.
Ferries will operate at these times:
- Every 20 minutes, 6 AM – 10:30 AM and 3 PM – 7 PM
- Every 40 minutes, 10:30 AM – 3 PM
What We're Working On
By consolidating the service disruptions, the MBTA will bring the tunnel to a state of good repair a year earlier than planned and save $2 million – $3 million.
Crews will replace 1,800 feet of track, inspect tunnel and drainage systems, seal leaks, and perform other preventive maintenance on the tunnel.
