About the Project

  • Timeline: 2017 – 2020
  • Status: Construction


Major accessibility improvements, state-of-the-art safety features, and parking lot site improvements are some of the enhancements to be made during the project renovating Wollaston Station as part of the $911 million investment committed to improve the South Side Red Line.

Currently the only non ADA-accessible station on the Red Line, Wollaston will be transformed into a modern, fully accessible facility, making the entirety of the Red Line 100% accessible.

New features and upgrades to the station include 3 brand new elevators, 2 new escalators, and additional customer paths to/from the new station, including 2 additional stairways, new bathrooms, and energy efficient lighting. New electrical, fire protection, security, flooding mitigation, and site utility upgrades will also occur to support the accessible improvements. The estimated construction value of the Wollaston Station Improvements is $33 million.
