Braintree: Ramp and Sidewalk Replacement, Accessible Detours

Updated on August 29, 2018

Construction activities will require pedestrians seeking an accessible route from Union Street to Braintree Station to follow alternative routes while improvements are underway as part of the South Shore Garages project.

A new temporary bus stop will be provided for Phase 1 work only.

Braintree Accessible Pedestrian Detour Map (2 Phases)

Phase 1: Ramp Replacement

September 4 – 7, 2018

The ramp on the Union Street side of the parking garage will be closed.

To enter Braintree Station, pedestrians should follow signage around the front of garage and along Ivory Street.

During this work, a temporary bus stop for Route 230 will be located at the corner of Union and Ivory streets. Bus stop signage will be posted.

Phase 2: Sidewalk Replacement

September 10, 2018 – July 2019

The existing brick sidewalk will be removed and replaced.

Temporary signage and jersey barriers will be in place to clearly direct commuters to/from the station.

Pedestrians using Union Street should follow the designated alternative access route to/from the station.


We acknowledge that these changes will be disruptive. Please feel free to email the project team at or call MBTA customer service at 617-222-3200.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we work to bring long-awaited improvements to Braintree Station.
