Service Alerts For Haverhill Line CloseView
Track Change (Ongoing)
Please board all trains on the inbound platforms at Haverhill and Bradford except Trains 216 (1:35 pm from Haverhill) and 222 (6:09 pm from Haverhill).
Due to the Merrimack River Bridge project, trains that operate between Bradford and Haverhill will only use the inbound track. Trains that are bused between Haverhill and Bradford will board on the outbound platform at Bradford for service into Boston. Note:
Train 216 (1:35 pm from Haverhill) and Train 222 (6:09 pm from Haverhill) are bused from Haverhill Station to Bradford Station. The outbound platform at Bradford may be accessed via the crossing that is south (to the right when facing the tracks from the parking lot) of the mini-high platforms. Alternatively, the outbound platform can also be accessed via the sidewalk from Laurel Avenue.
Shuttle buses, operating between Haverhill and Oak Grove, will replace all weekend service on the Haverhill Line from September 23rd through December 2nd due to the installation of PTC.
To help passengers travel between Boston and Haverhill, the MBTA is running ADA accessible bus shuttles (with WiFi and restroom facilities) that will make stops at every Commuter Rail station between Haverhill and Wyoming Hill, terminating at OAK GROVE for an Orange Line connection to Boston. Shuttle buses will NOT make stops at Malden Center or North Station.
During this time, the MBTA will install federally mandated Positive Train Control (PTC) systems along the Haverhill Line to improve safety by reducing train collisions and derailments. This work will require weekend shutdowns on the entire line from September 23 through December 2.

Station Issue (Ongoing)
Access to the east entrance of North Station is available through a covered walkway. Legends Way is closed to pedestrian access.
Customers are advised that the pedestrian route for customers transferring from the Green and Orange Line exits at Causeway and Beverly St into North Station Commuter Rail will be moved slightly to accommodate ongoing construction work.
After crossing Causeway St, pedestrians will use a protected walkway along the east side of Legends Way, directly abutting Portal Park. The walkway will include a barrier and kick-plate for blind and low vision passengers.
As an alternative, customers may consider utilizing the west exit from North Station Commuter Rail due to congestion.
