MBTA Public Meeting Re: Haverhill Commuter Rail Line Improvements

Weekend service to shut down Sept 23-Dec 2, 2017

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.

SEPTEMBER 13, 2017 – 6:30 PM

What’s going on?
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.
