Proudly representing the City of Quincy and Towns of Abington, Braintree, Holbrook and Rockland
Dear Friends,
As a regular Red Line commuter myself, I know how important it is to stay up-to-date on the various improvement projects happening along our daily commutes. Below, you will find a few updates regarding Red Line weekend closures and construction progress at Wollaston and North Quincy Stations.

As always, please reach out to my office if there are any immediate concerns.

Thank you for the honor of serving,

John Keenan
Red Line Weekend Closures 
As part of the MBTA’s effort to expedite Red Line improvements, shuttle service will replace subway service between Kendall/MIT and Broadway for four weekends in November and December.

Weekend work will begin Friday, November 15 at 8:45 p.m. and will last until the Monday morning commute. Regular service will resume for Thanksgiving weekend, and then weekend work will continue on the Red Line through December 15.

MBTA crews plan to replace 900 feet of track along the right-of-way tunnels over the four weekend closures. Additionally, improvements will include station brightening, new signage, cleaning, and painting.

Find out where you can find shuttle service here .
Wollaston Station Reopened
A brand-new Wollaston Station is reopened for Red Line Service!

The station is now ADA-accessible with 3 new elevators, 2 new escalators, 2 additional stairways, and accessible bathrooms. New pedestrian paths have also been added, including a new pedestrian bridge, and 2 new sets of fare gates have been added to help reduce lines in the station.

The parking lot at Wollaston Station has been rebuilt and mostly repaved. The final paving of the north parking lot at Greenwood Avenue, Woodbine & Wayland Streets is scheduled for November and early December. On Saturday, November 16, the final coat of pavement will be placed on Beale Street & Newport Avenue.

Stay up-to-date on Wollaston parking lot improvements here
Commuter Rail Alternative
Many of you have reached out to the office about using the Commuter Rail as an alternative to the Red Line while restorations are being made.

After talks with the MBTA, they have agreed to continue this alternative between Quincy Center and South Station. Until the North Quincy Garage is completed and more parking is restored, commuters will be able to show their Charlie Card for Commuter Rail service between South Station and Quincy Center. 
North Quincy Update 
Construction continues on the transit-oriented development project and MBTA garage at Quincy Center. Pedestrian, car, and bus/shuttle access to the station will be maintained throughout construction but slightly adjusted. Be on the lookout for signs directing traffic for drop-off/ pick-up and parking.
