MBTA's Lechmere Station Set To Close For Over A Year

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Lechmere Station will be closed from May 2020 to April 2021, the MBTA announced.

Built in 1922, the longtime Green Line stop and bus depot is being torn down as part of the MBTA's Green Line Extension Project, which will see six new T stops built between Lechmere, the current northern end of the Green Line, and Medford.

Starting in May, riders will have to take shuttle buses from North Station to Lechmere, allowing construction on a new station on the other side of the O'Brien Highway.
