Another year, another MBTA shutdown. This October, service on parts of the Red Line will be shut down for 16 days from Saturday, Oct. 14-Sunday, Oct. 29.
During this time, repairs will be made to 5+ miles of tracks in an effort to alleviate 28 speed restrictions. Teams will also complete other tasks, including painting, repairing lights, and improving accessibility. The shutdown will cost the T an estimated $12.2 million in lost revenue + fees, not including the price tag for the actual repairs.
- The Ashmont Branch trains and Mattapan Line trolleys, totaling 11 stations.
