They're a-workin' on the railroad

Posted by Martin Finucane March 22, 2007 07:00 AM


The Massachusetts Bay Commuter Railroad, which runs the Commuter Rail for the MBTA, has issued two dire warnings yesterday for riders of the Worcester and Rockport commuter lines.

For the Worcester-Framingham line, CSX work is expected to delay trains up to 30 minutes from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The delays are expected to affect inbound trains P518, P520, P522, P524, P526 and outbound trains P509, P511, P513, P515 and P517.

For the Newburyport-Rockport-Beverly line out of North Station, construction work by MassHighway will create delays on the line through March 28th. The Massachusetts Highway Department is removing a bridge abutment and retaining wall between Beverly and Salem, causing 12 to 15 minute delays between those two stations.
