BOSTON (WHDH) - Days ahead of the T’s planned reopening of the Orange Line Monday after a 30-day shutdown, the MBTA said the planned construction work is 96% complete.
The T tweeted that 33 projects were planned “that will revitalize infrastructure & work to improve service.” The T added that it also completed “dozens of opportunity projects.”
They said they’ve replaced 12,320 feet of rail and 3,500 feet of full-depth track. By the time the project is complete, 70+ new Orange Line cars will be in service.
As work wraps up throughout the weekend, crews will clean stations and platforms across the line and will conduct final tests.
