MBTA Red Line Third Rail Work, August 2015Beginning Saturday, August 29th, and continuing on selected weekends through the remainder of the summer, Red Line service between JFK/UMass and Quincy 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 Quincy will be suspended in both directions from start to end of service. Shuttle bus service will be provided, serving JFK/UMass and Quincy stations.

Service between North Quincy and JFK/UMass Stations will be suspended this weekend, August 29 and 30.

Service between Quincy Center and JFK/UMass Stations will be suspended the following weekends: September 12-13, 19-20, and 26-27. Shuttle buses will serve all stations impacted by the suspension of rail service.

Information about weekend service suspensions during the fall will be made available in the near future.

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

Similar work began this summer on outdoor sections of the Orange Line between Oak Grove Station and Wellington Station and is scheduled to continue through September 8 from 8:45 PM to the end of regular service hours. Shuttle bus service is being provided, serving Wellington, Malden Center, and Oak Grove stations.
