Parking spots at Braintree Station Garage reduced by 400 for accelerated work

BRAINTREE, Mass. — Finding a spot to park at the Braintree Station Garage will get a bit more challenging for commuters Monday as up to about 400 fewer parking spots will be available.

The work, which starts Feb.10, is part of an accelerated plan by the MBTA for repairs to the garage, which includes new lighting, an improved parking layout that creates more spaces and improvements to walkways for commuters. The work has been ongoing since 2018, but the next phase will speed up the process, according to the MBTA, allowing the completion of repairs in a shorter amount of time.

The MBTA is encouraging riders to park at the Quincy Adams Garage or in one of the 315 surface parking spots next to the garage, along Ivory Street. Riders can find real-time information on the number of spots available by following @MBTA_Parking.

The work is scheduled to be completed in July 2021.
