Night Work At Wollaston, Quincy Center Stations

By SCOTT JACKSON

Overnight work at the Wollaston and Quincy Center MBTA stations is set to resume on June 17, requiring the closure of the Red Line during those times.

Twelve weeks of nighttime work will take place at the Wollaston station, T officials said, and there will be three weeks worth of nighttime work at Quincy Center. Nighttime work will occur Sunday through Thursday each week between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.

Shuttle bus service will be in place during that time.

Nighttime work is required when construction activities are on or near the railroad right-of-way. Crews are currently working on the platform at the Wollaston station, and the work there can only be safely accomplished when there are no trains on either the northbound or southbound track.

At the Quincy Center station, Atlantic Dismantling will erect a protective canopy at the Burgin Parkway and Hancock Street pedestrian entrances to the station during the overnight hours. Once installed, the protective canopy will allow the station to remain open and to keep passengers safe during demolition.

Additionally, work on the elevator requires a work zone be set-up on a portion of the platform; this is temporary and will be removed as soon as possible.

As part of the ongoing work at the two stations, single-track operations will again be in place Saturday and Sunday, and again on June 16. Weekend single-track operations begins at the start of service and continues through to the end of service each day.

The next meeting of the Wollaston Citizens Advisory Committee is set for June 20 at 6:30 p.m. inside City Hall. Committee meetings are open to the public.
