Wire problem causes partial shutdown on Green Line between Riverside and Reservoir

Globe Staff/File

A wire problem forced the partial shutdown of the D branch of the Green Line during the morning commute Monday, but regularly scheduled service had resumed by midafternoon, according to the MBTA.

The T said via Twitter around 8 a.m. that shuttle buses were “replacing service in both directions between Riverside and Reservoir due to a wire problem. Please expect delays as buses are dispatched.”

In a follow-up tweet around 8:45 a.m., the T said 40 shuttle buses “are currently in place or enroute. Please expect delays as they arrive from other routes.”

The T tweeted at 3:02 p.m., “D Branch - Update: Regularly scheduled service has resumed.”


The Green Line snafu came as officials continued to investigate the June 11 derailment of a Red Line train that will likely interrupt service through the summer as workers rebuild a signal system that was badly damaged.
