MBTA Service Update After Boston Parking Lot Collapse – NECN

While MBTA service remains impacted by a deadly garage collapse this weekend in Boston, the Orange Line is largely back in business.

Part of the Government Center garage collapsed on Saturday, killing Peter Monsini, 51, of South Easton.

The MBTA said on Tuesday it had tested its trains in the tunnels and determined it was safe to resume Orange Line service, but trains will continue to bypass the Haymarket stop in both directions until further notice.

Service on the Green Line remains suspended between Gare du Nord and the Government Center.

Shuttle service on this section of the Green Line continued on Tuesday evening, but from Wednesday morning passengers will instead be asked to use the Orange Line instead.

Service has largely resumed on the MBTA’s Orange Line, but Green Line service remains suspended after the fatal partial collapse of the Government Center parking lot.

The MBTA says structural engineers need to continue their work assessing tunnels that use the Green Line because most of the debris has fallen to the ground directly above.

The agency estimates that around 100 tonnes of debris fell over the subway tunnels, adding that there is no indication of damage to infrastructure.
