BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The MBTA has crews back on the tracks for three periods of nine days for repairs and track replacements. The Green Line D branch will be closed for nine days beginning September 24.
The closures will take place on a rolling basis from September 24 to October 30, according to the MBTA. Shuttle buses will replace service between Riverside and Kenmore from September 24 until October 2.
The next two nine-day periods are scheduled to take place October 8 through October 16 and October 22 through October 30 for track and infrastructure upgrades.
T crews will replace 6000 feet of track, upgrade six station crossings, and install new equipment along the trolley line. At Woodland station, two station crossings and more than 2,000 feet of track will be replaced.
Over the summer, the Green Line Transformation team completed work on the Green Line B, C, and E branches. The D branch diversion is the last Green Line branch that needs work and repairs in this project, according to the MBTA.
