Signal problems cause ‘severe’ delays on Green Line

BOSTON (WHDH) - A signal problem on the MBTA’s Green Line caused major headaches Monday morning for commuters in the city of Boston.

The MBTA says a power problem reported just after 8 a.m. impacted signals throughout the green line’s tunnel between Kenmore Square and Park Street station.

At the same time, crews responded to a manhole fire on Newbury Street. The MBTA says that is where they lost power.

An investigation is being conducted to see if the two incidents were related.

7’s Dan Hausle reported that “all signals” were down on the line and that “nothing” was moving in the subway at the height of the commute.
