On weekends this fall, starting September 30, shuttle buses will replace Red Line service on the Longfellow Bridge, from Kendall/MIT to Park Street stations. The bridge will be closed to finish track replacements for trains.
Soon, you can expect a smoother, faster ride across the Longfellow on the Red Line.
Weekends with Shuttle Bus Service
Currently, the bridge is expected to be closed for 7 weekends. There are 3 weekends reserved for additional closures if they are needed to finish construction.
