The replacement of deteriorating concrete ties on the Old Colony Line is underway. As a result, Plymouth Station is temporarily closed beginning today, November 3. Train service will be provided to and from Kingston Station ONLY. A shuttle bus will be provided Monday through Friday to take customers between the Plymouth and Kingston Stations. NO shuttle bus will be provided on weekends and holidays during the work.
The MBTA contractor, J.F. White, will replace the concrete ties between Plymouth Station and the Route 3 Overhead Bridge in Kingston.
The project reflects the MBTA’s commitment to provide customers with enhanced service reliability and MassDOT’s commitment to continually maintain and improve the Commonwealth’s transportation infrastructure.
Beginning today, all information about the project including work schedule, bus replacement service, and project updates will be available by visiting www.mbta.com, then clicking on “About the MBTA”, and “Projects.” You may also call the MBTA Customer Support Service Center at (617) 222-3200.
