Red Line Weekend Closures Announcement

Red Line riders listen up!

Third of Four Weekend Red Line Diversions Starts Tonight!

Bus shuttles are being provided between Broadway and Kendall/MIT for four weekends beginning at 8:45 p.m. on Fridays and lasting through the end of service on Sundays.

Accelerated work will continue to take place on the Red Line for two more weekends with a continued focus on station improvements and track replacement. These weekend shutdowns allow the MBTA to complete work on the Red Line level at Park Street four months earlier than planned and at Downtown Crossing nearly a year earlier than planned.

During the weekend Red Line shutdowns, bus shuttles are provided between Kendall/MIT and Broadway Stations. Due to one-way traffic patterns, shuttle service toward Alewife will not stop at Park Street and shuttle service toward Ashmont/Braintree will not stop at Downtown Crossing. Full shuttle bus and alternate travel information can be found at mbta.com/RLwork.

The upcoming weekends in which Red Line service is suspended between Broadway and Kendall/MIT Stations are:

• 8:45 p.m. on December 6 through December 8.
• 8:45 p.m. on December 13 through December 15.
