Winchester Station Closed for Demolition Work

Updated on March 1, 2021

Winchester Station has been closed for emergency ramp demolition.

On January 7, 2021, the MBTA closed Winchester Station as a result of an inspection that indicated significant deterioration of the pedestrian ramps, platforms, and canopies. Demolition work will be performed as needed to safely secure the station.

This demolition work will begin in February, and we expect to complete this work by June 2021.

We appreciate your patience during this safety-related closure of Winchester Station.

Service Impacts

Trains will no longer stop at Winchester Center Station. Riders should consider Wedgemere as an alternative.

Check Lowell Line alerts

Construction advisories will be distributed ahead of any significant work taking place. Neighbors can expect increased noise and periods of vibration from heavy equipment and machinery during the demolition work.
