ELEVATOR REPLACEMENTS AT TUFTS MEDICAL CENTER AND ANDREW STATIONS
On December 16, 2008 the MBTA authorized design services for the elevator replacements at Tufts (formerly New England) Medical Center and Andrew Stations.
Design services were completed in March 2016 incorporating 8th edition State Building Code requirements, MBTA updates into the design program, critical repairs to electrical equipment and the latest Elevator Design Guidelines. In June 2016 the project was bid by LMH Civil Construction at $7.8M.
The Stations will remain open during the construction phase with replacement bus services for customers requiring elevators to access the Orange and Red Line services at Tufts and Andrew Stations, respectively. Construction is scheduled to start from Tufts in October 2016 and conclude at Andrew in the 4th quarter of 2018.
