Riders of the Riverside line are in for a long summer as the T announced yesterday that major track work will be done on the D Line to allow the Type 8 Breda trolleys to use the line.
Here are the details.
- From June 21st to July 31st the line will be shut down between Riverside and Reservoir so the T can replace rail ties and make the stations more ADA compliant.
- On Aug. 4 and 5, the entire branch will be closed.
- From August 6th to September 2nd the line will be closed from Reservoir to Fenway. The T plans extra service on the C Line during this period.
This is going to be lovely on days and evenings when the Red Sox are at home. The T plans to run express buses to Fenway during this construction.
