BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The MBTA’s Orange Line has announced the completion of critical track work. This was the result of suspended service between the Wellington and Back Bay stations from May 28-June 6.  

During this period, crews completed important safety related work to lift nine safety-related speed restrictions, creating a safer and more reliable trip for riders with fewer service disruptions.  

“As we restore our track infrastructure across the system, the work during this Orange Line outage demonstrates our commitment to the public to deliver more reliable service. In just 10 days, we replaced over 12,000 feet of running rail in this area,” said MBTA General Manager and CEO Phillip Eng.
