    The passageway between the Red Line-Alewife and Orange Line-Forest Hills platforms at Downtown Crossing will be closed from Tue May 29 through Mon Jul 2 to allow for the construction of a new elevator.

    The Winter Street Concourse provides a direct, accessible connection between the Red Line at Park Street and the Orange Line-Forest Hills platform at Downtown Crossing. To connect from the Orange Line to the Red Line, follow detour signs for the Red Line-Alewife via the Winter Street Concourse.
