Stage One Of Green Line D Branch Closure Begins Saturday – Boston News, Weather, Sports

BOSTON (WHDH) — The MBTA Green Line began its ongoing service disruption Saturday.

Shuttle buses will replace the D branch between Kenmore and Riverside through October 2nd.

Shuttle service is not available for the Beaconsfield station. The T recommends that passengers take a four-minute walk to the C branch or a 10-minute walk to another Green Line D branch with shuttle bus service.

Shutdowns were ordered to allow crews to replace about 600 feet of track, repair station crossings, and install collision-prevention equipment.

Boston Mayor Michelle We said that efficient public transportation can help alleviate some of the traffic problems Boston faces.

“We have to be creative,” Wu said. “[We have to] Find the right balance to move as many people as possible during rush hour.”

Saturday’s shutdown begins the first of three 9-day shutdowns for the Green Line D branch.

The full list of closure dates includes:

  • 24 Sept-Oct 2
  • 8 Oct-Oct 16
  • Oct 22-Oct 30

MBTA officials previously said this is expected to be the final Green Line closure for the foreseeable future.

The D-Leg shutdowns come less than a week after the end of the 30-day shutdown of the Orange Line and portions of the Green Line.
