Wollaston Station Improvements

The building facade of the newly renovated Wollaston Station, viewed head on from the new parking lot.

A brand-new, rebuilt Wollaston Station reopened for Red Line service Friday, August 16, 2019.

We closed Wollaston on January 8, 2018, for a $36 million transformation. It was the only station on the Red Line not accessible to people with disabilities and it no longer met safety, flooding, or operational standards—so we rebuilt it from the ground up.

Contract: Awarded June 2017
Budget: $36 million
Status: Station reopened August 2019

Inside the brand-new station, you’ll find accessibility improvements including 3 new elevators, 2 new escalators, 2 additional stairways, and accessible bathrooms.

We’ve also added new pedestrian paths to, from, and inside the new station, including a new pedestrian bridge, and 2 new sets of fare gates to help reduce lines in the station.

Parking Updates

The Wollaston parking lot is being rebuilt and repaved in phases, featuring new lights, signs, and landscaping. As of the reopening, parking prices are:

  • $6 on weekdays
  • $3 Saturdays and Sundays
  • $105 for a monthly pass

Note: On Friday, November 22, 2019, the north section of the parking lot will be closed for final paving.

Ongoing Work

New sidewalk construction at Wollaston Station looking northbound (October 2019)

We’re in the process of repaving and improving streets and sidewalks that are adjacent to the station, including:

  • Greenwood Ave
  • Beale Street @ Newport Ave
  • Woodbine Street
  • Wayland Street

During this time, there will be temporary lane restrictions, with Jersey barriers and safety cones to help direct traffic through the area. Some sidewalks along Beale St. and Newport Ave will also be temporarily closed to pedestrian traffic, and pedestrians will need to use the sidewalks across from each street.

We expect to complete this work through November into early December 2019, as weather allows.
