MBTA Public Meetings Regarding Weekend Service Changes Related to Positive Train Control Project

THE FOLLOWING IS A MESSAGE FROM MASSDOT REGARDING PUBLIC MEETINGS RELATED TO UPCOMING SCHEDULE CHANGES TO THE HAVERHILL LINE


SEPTEMBER 12, 2017 – 6:30 PM
Reading Public Library
Community Room A
64 Middlesex Avenue, Reading


SEPTEMBER 13, 2017 – 6:30 PM
Lawrence Public Library
Sargent’s Auditorium
51 Lawrence Street, Lawrence


Come learn about improvements being implemented this fall on the Haverhill Commuter Rail Line, and the alternative travel options being provided to keep you moving.

From September 23 – December 2, there will be no train service on weekends while we install a new train safety control system on the Haverhill Commuter Rail Line. This is a federally-mandated upgrade that will prevent human error, and reduce train collisions and derailments.


To effectively meet deadlines required by the Federal Railroad Administration the MBTA must shutdown weekend service beginning September 23, 2017.
