Lechmere Viaduct Rehabilitation Update

As part of the Green Line Transformation (GLT) program, work is continuing on the Lechmere Viaduct Rehabilitation project, in which the MBTA is rehabilitating and replacing track on the historic, concrete arched structure. Marine mobilization has begun and starting Wednesday, July 15, construction access will require utilization of property adjacent to Education First.

The Education First tennis courts/hardscapes located at Two Education Circle, Cambridge will be out of service starting Wednesday, July 15, 2020 until July 2021.

This important infrastructure project will strengthen the structure of the 110-year-old viaduct to handle heavier loads and increased train frequency while also preserving its historic facade. Work includes the complete reconstruction of track, signals, and traction power on the viaduct.

The GLT team appreciates the patience and understanding of residential abutters and others affected by construction as the team continues to make strides in delivering Green Line improvements to the region on schedule. The MBTA also thanks its city partners, municipal leaders, and stakeholder groups for their continued collaboration and support of GLT.
