Green Line Intersection Upgrades

A Green Line train passes over a newly completed intersection upgrade

In 2019, we replaced sections of track where the rail crosses the road and pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers pass over the tracks.

Uneven pavement was replaced with a new, smooth layer. Accessible ramps were installed in several sidewalk locations.

  • Contract awarded: March 2019
  • Projected completion: Substantial completion November 2019; final completion April 2020
  • Budget: $21,000,001
  • Status: 100% construction complete

As part of the Green Line Transformation (GLT), this project meets the following goals:

  • Access: New pedestrian pathways at 18 stations
  • Safety and resiliency: New rail and pavement at 30 crossings to mitigate risk of service interruptions due to track conditions
  • Customer experience: Safer pedestrian, vehicle, and bicycle crossings

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.

This project is one of many we're working on to ensure twice as many passengers have access to a safer, more comfortable, and more reliable Green Line by 2030.

Follow-up Work

We will be completing final site work on the Green Line throughout December. Crews will be working overnight, after service has ended, to install pedestrian crossing panels at the following locations:

  • Beacon Street at Englewood Avenue, Winthrop Road, and Winchester Street: Monday, December 9 through Wednesday, December 11
  • Commonwealth Avenue at Summit Avenue: Thursday, December 12

Crews will also complete overnight signal conduit work on Commonwealth Avenue at Babcock Street and Buick Street from Monday, December 16, through Friday, December 20.

The site work will not affect Green Line service.

Additional site work will be scheduled on the Mattapan Line in 2020. Check this page for updates, or sign up for updates right to your inbox.
