Orange Line Track and Signal Upgrades (2022)

Orange Line tracks and signals near Wellington station on a sunny day

As part of the Orange Line Transformation Program, we accelerated important reliability upgrades during a 30-day shutdown of the entire line from 9 PM on August 19 through September 18, during which crews completed multiple projects more than five years faster than originally planned. 

Regular Orange Line service returns with the first train the morning of Monday, September 19.
