Green Line Intersection Upgrades

Updated on May 10, 2019

Drivers and pedestrians cross the Green Line B

About the Project

Between 2019 and 2020, we will replace sections of track where the rail crosses the road and pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers pass over the tracks.

Uneven pavement will be replaced with a new, smooth layer. Accessible ramps will be installed in several sidewalk locations. 

Why We’re Doing This Work

This project will bring Green Line intersection tracks into a State of Good Repair.

Where We’re Doing This Work

The work will primarily be on the Green Line B and C. We will also replace sections on the E Line and Mattapan Line. Additional locations may be announced in the future.  

What You Can Expect

We will demolish and reconstruct rails, install new rubber or asphalt road crossings, and pour new pavement at each of the crossings.

To do this work, we need safe access to the tracks and subsurface at each location. We plan to complete construction over approximately 17 weekends between June 2019 and May 2020, in coordination with other Green Line projects.

Green Line Transformation

The Green Line Transformation is a range of projects that will modernize stations and systems, and adopt new technology to meet the demands of a modern city.
