MBTA to shut down parts of Orange, Green Line this weekend

BOSTON — Parts of the MBTA’s Orange and Green Lines will temporarily shut down on January 28 and 29.

The transit agency announced that it will close the Green Line between Government Center and North Station on Saturday and Sunday. The Orange Line will be shut down between Ruggles and North Station. The two-day shutdown is due to work on the Government Center Garage.

According to the Boston Globe, the T will also eliminate slow zone that were supposed to be removed from the Orange Line during the month-long shutdown.

The goal was to repair the tracks and improve travel times but with reduced trains, riders have experienced even slower wait times.
