The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) last week began a two-week demolition of the Lechmere Viaduct between the Gilmore Bridge and existing Lechmere Station in East Cambridge.
The work will further advance the relocation and reconstruction of Lechmere Station now underway as part of the MBTA’s Green Line Extension project.
The project, scheduled for completion in December 2021, will extend Green Line service from the new Lechmere Station along two new branches to Union Square in Somerville and to College Avenue/Tufts University in Medford.
The process for reconstructing the viaduct will continue through the summer.
