See Red Line Work We Completed December 6 – 8

Updated on December 12, 2019

During 4 weekend shutdowns from November 15 – December 15, 2019, we closed sections of the Red Line to work on track replacement and station improvements. These closures allowed us to complete work at Park Street 4 months earlier than planned and at Downtown Crossing 11 months earlier than planned.

This project, in conjunction with slab replacements we’re working on in 2020, will keep the tracks in a state of good repair and will support the new Red Line vehicles coming into service.

We thank you for your patience during these closures.
