See Orange Line Work We Completed February 14 – 16

Updated on February 21, 2020

Crew members work on rail tie replacement during the final Orange Line weekend shutdown of winter 2020

Over the last 4 weekends, we completed the first phase of 2020 Orange Line acceleration work.

These service shutdowns allowed our crews to complete work on 2 projects simultaneously—Orange Line Maintenance and Station Brightening—during which we replaced more than 1,000 feet of rail, repaired platforms, and rebuilt stairs to renew the service life and reliability of our infrastructure.

We thank you for your patience during these closures.
