What to Expect During This Work

There may be limited interruptions of subway and Commuter Rail service while we work on the Braintree and Quincy Adams garages. We'll schedule this work for weekends and off-peak hours when possible.

The 2 outer lanes of the toll plaza are closed until further notice while we repair the Centre Street bridge.

The pedestrian bridge at the Braintree Parking Garage was demolished in December 2019. It will be replaced by a new garage lobby featuring elevators and stairwells.

The Route 3 flyover ramp to the 2nd level of the Braintree Garage is closed due to construction. Drivers can access the Braintree Garage and drop-off/pick-up from the Ivory Street entrance during this time.
