This project is part of the Light Rail Accessibility Project. A new center-side platform station will be built on Commonwealth Avenue to provide a higher level of accessibility to all passengers. The station will include a full canopy over the Inbound platform, track relocation, installation of a diamond crossover, a mini-high and two portable lifts, and upgrades to all power, signal and communications systems. The new station will provide for more efficient train operations because the trains will cross the Lake Street intersection and move into and out of the yard with less frequency and the new diamond crossover provides for greater operational flexibility. In addition, the safety of our patrons will significantly improve as they cross Commonwealth Ave. and Lake Street via updated, accessible crosswalks and new traffic signals. Vehicular movements at the intersection will also benefit as a result of less train movements.
