The MBTA would like riders to be aware of adjacent projects on the Orange Line. While the OLT team does not directly oversee these projects, we coordinate closely with the teams leading them.
- Speed Restrictions: The MBTA has launched a live, online Speed Restriction Dashboard found at https://www.mbta.com/performance-metrics/speed-restrictions that provides riders with up-to-date information on speed restrictions across the MBTA system. The dashboard reports on location, speed limit, when a restriction was put in place and the reason for the restriction on the Red, Orange, Blue, Mattapan or Green Lines. Riders are encouraged to use the updated MBTA Trip Planner tool (https://www.mbta.com/trip-planner), the Alternative Service page (https://www.mbta.com/projects/alternative-service-options-during-speed-restrictions) and rider guide(https://cdn.mbta.com/sites/default/files/2023-03/alternative-service-speed-restrictions-digital_03-17-23-english.pdf)for a list of travel options. We appreciate our riders’ patience and recommend checking the MBTA’s Twitter and Alerts pages for regular updates.
- Haymarket Station Closures for Government Center Garage Work: Haymarket Station will be closed in both directions during the weekends of May 13-14 and May 20-21 to allow for work on the Government Center Garage demolition. An accessible shuttle will be available upon demand.
