For MassDOT and the MBTA, safety is a top priority, for customers and for our employees and construction crews.
The March rapid response by MBTA crews to the flood-related track washout in Newton, left, is a dramatic example of putting safety first for riders and workers.
With the regular construction season now in full swing, the T continues to focus on construction site safety.

- making sure everyone on site follows a project's Safety Management Plan
- providing a safe route for the traveling public including pedestrians and bicyclists at all construction locations.
