MBTA Red Line Winter Resiliency Work, September 2015On Saturday, September 12, and continuing on selected weekends through the fall, Red Line service between JFK/UMass and Quincy Center will be temporarily suspended to allow workers to make the subway more resilient to harsh winter weather conditions.

On weekends when workers will be replacing third rail and switch heaters, Red Line service between JFK/UMass and the Quincy Center will be suspended in both directions from start to end of service. Shuttle bus service will be provided, serving all stations in the suspended areas.

In addition to this coming weekend, service between Quincy Center and JFK/UMass Stations will be suspended the following weekends: September 19-20, and 26-27. Shuttle buses will serve all stations impacted by the suspension of rail service. Please view a detailed listing of Red Line alerts.

“Approximately 39,000 linear feet of third rail needs to be replaced before the winter,” said MBTA General Manager Frank DePaola. “Thirty-four percent, or 13,350 linear feet, has already been installed and crews continue to work at a steady pace.”

A schedule for winter resiliency work in October will be posted soon.

The $83.7 million Winter Resiliency Plan is designed to address critically needed improvements to the MBTA’s infrastructure, equipment, and operations.

Work also began this summer on the Orange Line north of Sullivan Station, and is scheduled to continue on weeknights through October, from 8:45 p.m. to the end of regular service hours. Replacing rail service, shuttle buses serve Sullivan, Wellington, Assembly, Malden Center and Oak Grove Stations. All shuttle bus stops are accessible for persons with disabilities.
