MBTA to shut down much of Orange Line this weekend


Much of the Orange Line will be shut down this weekend to speed up track, work that will continue next month along with additional subway diversions that the MBTA plans to announce later this week, a spokesperson said.

The MBTA said in a Tuesday tweet that the Orange Line will be closed from North Station to Ruggles, for work on the Government Center Garage, a service disruption that extends further than what was previously shared with the public.

“With Orange Line service suspended to accommodate the ongoing demolition of the Government Center parking garage by the private developer, HYM, the MBTA is leveraging this opportunity to perform additional track work, including the replacement of rail fasteners, between Back Bay and Ruggles station,” MBTA spokesperson Joe Pesaturo said.

“The important work this weekend, which will continue next month, will lead to faster and more reliable Orange Line service.”
