Comm. Ave. @ BU Bridge overpass replacement

Postby BandA » Tue Apr 11, 2017 3:00 pm

Boston College branch will be bustituted Babcock to Blandford St. 7/26/2017 9PM to 8/14/2017 5AM AND the Mass Pike will be reduced 50% AND Commuter Rail/LSL bustitution 2 weekends
“This time frame was carefully selected to minimize traffic impacts,” Tinlin said. Indeed, weekday ridership on the Green Line’s B branch, which runs down the center of Commonwealth, drops to 10,900 daily in the summer, according to MBTA statistics — less than half of the annual daily average.
