MBTA: Train service halted, delaying commuters after vehicle strikes bridge near Dedham station

DEDHAM, Mass. — MBTA train service was halted at the Endicott Commuter Rail station in Dedham and is still experiencing delays after a vehicle struck a bridge in the area, police and MBTA officials said.

All traffic has been detoured away from the bridge, and motorists are being asked to seek alternate routes while engineers inspect the damage, police said in a tweet at 11:19 a.m.

While train traffic began resuming on the Franklin Line around 11:26 a.m., passengers continued to experience severe delays, the MBTA said.

“Trains must operate at reduced speed through a single track until necessary repairs are are made to the 2nd track due to a vehicle sticking a bridge,” the MBTA said in a tweet.

The incident delayed and rerouted riders using the Commuter Rail.

Passengers on the Franklin/Foxboro Line Train 707 were bused between Readville and Dedham Corp., where they were expected to board another train for continued outbound service, the MBTA said in a tweet Monday morning.

At 11:38 a.m., the T was experiencing delays of about one hour for the Franklin Line Train 712 departing Forge Park/495 due to a vehicle striking a bridge in the Endicott area, the MBTA said.

The Endicott Commuter Rail station is located 186 Grant Ave. in Dedham.
