Wollaston Station along the red line is scheduled to close for 20 months in order to conduct major renovations. Upgrades to the station include making it 100% handicap accessible as well as the addition of new elevators, additional customer paths and increased security. Construction is set to begin in July 2017 and end in June of 2020, with the station being completely closed to the public until the summer of 2019.
Similar to the woes of the recent Government Center Station remodel, the 4,000 daily riders that utilize Wollaston Station will instead have to take a shuttle bus to another station (North Quincy) in order to get rail service. Although the inconvenience of closing Wollaston Station for such a lengthy period of time is undeniable, the benefits of upgrading the last inaccessible Red Line T-stop will benefit the community in the long run.
