Winchester Center Station Construction Began June 30
Updated on August 18, 2022
On June 30, 2022, crews completed preconstruction work and began construction on the Winchester Center Commuter Rail accessibility improvements.
The upgraded station is expected to open in spring 2024 with new high-level platforms, elevators and ramps to increase access and accommodations for boarding and exiting.
Building a Better T
As part of our $9.6 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.
What to Expect During This Work
Crews will work from 7 AM to 5:30 PM, Monday through Friday. This work is expected to continue until early winter.
To date, crews have completed:
- Preconstruction work including site surveys
- The demolition of older access ramps within the Aberjona, Waterfield and Laraway Parking Lots
- Removal of inaccessible platforms at the south end of the station
During construction, crews will begin installation of foundation infrastructure at the south end of the station lot.
Laraway Road will remain closed until the project is complete in spring 2024. During construction, the Waterfield and Aberjona Parking Lots will be unavailable.
Parking will be relocated to Waterfield Road, adjacent to Laraway Road. Construction may still impact this temporary parking area so check back here for updates.
Neighbors should expect increased noise and periods of vibration from heavy equipment and machinery during weekdays for the remainder of the summer into early winter.
