Partial Green Line closure planned days after Orange Line reopens



Another significant diversion is planned five days after service resumes on the Orange Line, and riders should expect continued disruptions as the MBTA works to update its infrastructure to comply with federal directives.

The D Branch of the Green Line, from Riverside to Kenmore, will be closed for a total of 27 days, between Sept. 24 and Oct. 30, to allow for track upgrades and the implementation of train-collision prevention equipment.

Shuttle buses will replace Green Line service from Saturday, Sept. 2 to Sunday, Oct. 2; Oct. 8-16 and Oct. 22-30, according to the MBTA.

The diversion comes after overlapping monthlong shutdowns on the entire Orange Line and another part of the Green Line, from Union Square to Government Center stations. Service on both lines will resume on Monday morning.

“This diversion was planned months ago,” MBTA spokesperson Joe Pesaturo said.

The upcoming work is part of the Green Line transformation project, which has already resulted in partial diversions on the B, C and E branches of the line during the spring and summer, according to the MBTA.
