Major construction for South Coast Rail won’t begin until design and permitting are complete. But this does not impede other construction activities required to maintain state-of-good-repair for the freight operator, which helps prepare the corridor for passenger service. These projects will replace four railroad bridges and reconstruct five grade crossings and track segments. MassDOT is also advancing substantial freight track repairs and rail upgrades as part of the Freight Improvement Program.
Regular construction updates, including traffic pattern shifts and lane closures, will be shared with the project email list in the future. Be sure to sign up for project updates and alerts!
