MBTA opens renovated Savin Hill Station

Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) recently re-opened the Savin Hill Station on the Red Line in Dorchester, Mass., which was closed for 14 months for renovations.

Originally built in 1927, the station now includes a new headhouse, extended platforms to accommodate six-car trains, and a new escalator and elevators.

The facility was the first of three stations in the city to be renovated under a $67 million station rehabilitation program. The Shawmut and Fields Corner stations are scheduled to be complete in 2006 and 2007, respectively.
