THIS WEEKEND: MBTA To Make Track & Drainage Improvements To Railroad Crossings On Glen Rd., Salem St., Clark Rd. & Main St.

Below is a press release from the MBTA/Keolis:

BOSTON, MA — On Saturday, April 9, 2022, beginning at 6:00 a.m., crews and machinery will be onsite making planned track and drainage improvements to multiple grade crossings on the Wildcat Branch of the MBTA Commuter Rail system in Wilmington. Work may occur at the following locations throughout the day on Saturday until 4:00 p.m. and resume on Sunday, April 10, 2022, from 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

  • Glen Road Crossing
  • Salem Street Crossing
  • Clark Road Crossing
  • Main Street Crossing

Residents can expect active work sites with machinery deployed to remove old ballast, reshape the surrounding landscape to improve drainage, install new stone ballast, and tamp the completed crossing. The grade crossing work will improve crossing reliability and minimize operational impacts from weather conditions. The track work will not impact Commuter Rail service for passengers, but residents may experience intermittent noise from the active work sites.
