Newton Highlands Station Accessibility Improvements

Rendering of a new ramp from Walnut Street

Between 2018 and 2019, upgrades to Newton Highlands Station are being designed. These updates will make the station accessible to people with disabilities and remove barriers to access on the Green Line.

In addition, a temporary ramp is being constructed at the station to make it accessible while work along the D Branch requires shuttle service overnight and on some weekends. This ramp will be demolished before work on the permanent accessibility upgrades begin.

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.

  • Contract awarded: Expected summer 2020
  • Projected completion: December 2022
  • Budget: $22,969,104
  • Status: 80% design

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

  • Accessibility: Full high-level boarding platforms; multiple accessible pedestrian crossings
  • Customer experience: New heated shelters, benches, bicycle storage, and in-station signs

Why We're Doing This Work

The overall accessibility of the MBTA has improved significantly in the last decade, but a number of stations on the Green Line present numerous barriers to access for people with disabilities. At Newton Highlands, these barriers include station access and boarding and exiting trains.
