CSX Trackwork

I signed up for commuter rail updates from MBCR/MBTA and received the following email this evening with respect to upcoming track work between Worcester and Westborough:

To Our Worcester / Framingham Line Customers


Beginning Sunday, April 13, 2008 CSX will be performing tie replacement on the MBTA commuter rail line between Westborough and Worcester. Crews will be working from 8:30a.m. to 6:30p.m. Sunday through Wednesday. This project will be performed in two phases as follows:

Phase 1 (April 13th – April 16th) – all Worcester inbound and outbound trains may experience up to 20 minute delays between the hours of 8:30a.m. and 6:30p.m. while operating through the work zone. From 6:30p.m. – 8:30a.m. trains may experience delays of 5-10 minutes as a result of speed restrictions imposed following the days track work.

Phase 2 (April 20th – April 23rd) – the project will resume; we anticipate that the work will be confined to the immediate Worcester area; delays will be significantly reduced through this phase. We will provide updates if there are any changes to the project plan.

Passengers are encouraged to log on to for updates as they relate to this project. We would also recommend that you consider signing up for the MBTA’s “T – Alerts” program.

Thank you for riding the commuter rail.
