The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s (MBTA) Orange Line has been closed for an unprecedented 30 days, from August 19 to September 18. It is the most prolonged spell in its history while infrastructure is upgraded.

To compensate for the inconvenience, the authorities have started a 200 shuttle bus service to accommodate Orange Line and Green Line riders on Boston streets over the next month.

City officials said in hopes of keeping shuttle buses on schedule during the Orange Line shutdown. Several roadways will be off-limits to general traffic to allow the public transit buses to flow freely:

The following streets are now closed:

  1. State Street between Congress and Washington Streets.
  2. Dartmouth Street between St. James Ave. and Boylston in the Back Bay.
  3. Washington Street is northbound from the Arborway to Williams Street in Jamaica Plain.

Drivers who park in restricted areas will be ticketed.

The closures, outlined by Mayor Michelle Wu and other city leaders on Thursday, August 17, are among several tweaks to city roads residents can expect as the MBTA readies for a 30-day shutdown of the Orange Line for repairs beginning on Friday at 9 p.m.

The agency closed the Green Line between Union Square and Government Center stations beginning on August 22 for 28 days.
