MBTA Red Line Winter Resiliency Work, September 2015On Saturday, September 19th, and continuing through October, Red Line service between JFK/UMass and Quincy Center will be temporarily suspended on weekends 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 Center stations 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 the final two weekends of this month, service between Quincy Center and JFK/UMass stations will be suspended the following weekends: October 3-4, 10-11, 24-25, and October 31-November 1. Shuttle buses will serve all stations impacted by the suspension of rail service.

“Before the snow falls, approximately 39,000 linear feet of third rail needs to be replaced,” said MBTA General Manager Frank DePaola. “At this point, close to 20,000 linear feet has been installed and we are pleased with the progress being made.”

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

In the meantime, nighttime winter resiliency work continues on the Orange Line north of Sullivan Square Station, and is scheduled to continue through October. Shuttle buses replace train service between Oak Grove and Sullivan Stations Sundays through Thursdays at 8:45 p.m.  Check a detailed listing on the MBTA website.
