What to Expect During Construction

Please note that these dates are approximate. Anticipated completion of the Natick Center Station been extended to early 2024. The station will remain open throughout construction.

  • Winter 2022 - Spring 2022: Construct East End Platforms
  • Spring 2022 - Winter 2023: Construct West End Platforms and Elevators
  • Winter 2023 - Spring 2023: Demolition of Temporary Platforms
  • Spring 2023 - Winter 2023: Pedestrian Bridge Replacement
  • Winter 2024: Streetscape work & Cochitutate Rail Trail Connection

Construction primarily takes place on weekdays during daytime hours. Nighttime work will take place as required. 

For public safety, we have installed temporary supplemental and emergency lighting. We anticipate this lighting to remain in place through the Spring of 2022, or until the station’s permanent lighting and emergency lighting fixtures are in use. The temporary lights are set and directed downward, with little to no light spillage onto adjacent properties expected.
