BOSTON — The Massachusetts Department of Transportation yesterday announced that due to construction operations, on Saturday, January 28, and Sunday, January 29, shuttle buses will replace subway and commuter rail services at specific locations listed below:
• Orange Line – Shuttle buses will replace trains from Wellington Station to Oak Grove Station.
• Commuter Rail — The Haverhill Line will terminate/originate at Malden Center. Shuttle buses will be provided between Oak Grove Station, Malden Center, and Wellington Station.
Regular MBTA service will resume at the start of service on Monday, January 30, 2017.
Rivers Edge Drive, which travels under Route 16, will be closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic with Wellington Circle and Santilli Circle as the alternate route to reverse direction.
Appropriate signs, channelizing devices and traffic control measures will be used to guide drivers through the restricted area.
MassDOT encourages drivers to seek alternate routes, if possible, to avoid delays. Drivers that must travel through the affected area should expect delays, reduce speed and use caution while traveling through the work zone.
