Re: T construction news

Great...now how are they ever going to double-track the Old Colony through that spot??? Yeah, but we're totes going to run two branches of South Coast FAIL through there.

Track shift to create room should've been in the design from Day 1. Can't facepalm hard enough at such a stupid, stupid oversight.

Re: T construction news

Demolition of Quincy Center garage is complete; work has now shifted to waterproofing and station repairs.


The Independence Avenue gate at Quincy Adams station is open as of early December.

Re: T construction news

As part of the Fenway Center project, Yawkey station is getting a deck over part of the platforms. It will provide access to the elevator bridge from the development and Beacon Street. The direct stairs from Beacon Street to the platforms are temporarily cut, but renders at the site indicate they will be restored after construction.



The Comm Ave reconstruction is (very slowly) coming along. Here are more-or-less completed bus boarding islands at University Road and St. Paul Street, both westbound.

Re: T construction news

The walls between roadway and platform are largely in place for the new station that will replace BU West and St. Paul Street stops. Work for the Pleasant/Babcock station has not begun.

Re: T construction news

Thanks for the updates, EGE! I didn't know the contract had been awarded for station consolidation, that's great news,

Re: T construction news

I don't think there was a separate contract - the last I heard, the MBTA was planning to have it be a change order on the contract for the road work. I don't think this is full construction on the station, but rather the walls are being installed as a integral part of the roadwork, with the platforms and canopies to be added later.

Re: T construction news

Are those concrete curbs in the Comm Ave project photos? If so, it would be a departure from the granite curbs used in the Boston metro area.

Very painful.
