MBTA passengers who board the Red Line at Wollaston station need to make other plans beginning Jan. 2.
The T has announced the station will be closed for 20 months while it carries out a $33 million renovation project. It also alerted passengers to other changes on the Braintree branch of the Red Line that could affect their commutes.
As work begins ahead of Wollaston’s closure, shuttles will provide night-time service five days a week through January. Beginning at 9 p.m. Nov. 12, shuttles will run between North Quincy and Braintree from 9 p.m. until the end of service Sundays through Thursdays.
Beginning in February, Saturday and Sunday service between North Quincy and Braintree will be replaced with shuttle buses on 18 weekends over the course of two years, according to the MBTA.
T officials said they will answer questions at a public meeting beginning at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 15 in the auditorium at Central Middle School, 875 Hancock St., Quincy.
During the Wollaston closure, free shuttle buses will provide service between Wollaston and North Quincy. A reduced number of parking spaces will be available at Wollaston, and additional parking will be available at the North Quincy station overflow parking lot along Newport Avenue.
Trains will travel through the Wollaston station but will not stop there.
The Wollaston renovations will make the station accessible to all riders, mitigate flooding problems, and add new bathrooms and energy-efficient systems.
The station is scheduled to reopen in August 2019.
