casey-arborway-logoAll MBTA Orange Line train service will board on the southbound platform at Forest Hills beginning Saturday, March 25, through June 2017, due to the Casey Arborway Project.

Beginning on Saturday, March 25, 2017 and running through June all Orange Line train service will arrive and depart from the western side of the Forest Hills platform (towards the Arboretum).   Normal two track operation will continue immediately north of the station.

The MBTA has protocols in place to ensure that this temporary condition does not impact service. These protocols were implemented successfully at Forest Hills from September through December of 2016.

This approach allows work to take place without requiring nighttime and weekend bus diversions for train service which have an impact on riders. This temporary change in service will allow the Casey Arborway project team to install electrical components and build underground elements associated with the new head-house for Forest Hills Station.

 When complete, the new headhouse will allow Orange Line riders to access transit service from the Southwest Corridor Park, Washington Street, and South Street without crossing the Arborway.
