MBTA Line Closings
We learned today that the MBTA will be performing repairs on a couple of key subway lines during Labor Day weekend (from 9pm on Friday to late Monday). (Thanks, Chris, for posting it in your blog.) Lines affected will be the Red line which runs between Boston and Cambridge, and the Blue line, which runs to the airport. The T will be providing shuttle buses to carry people across the closed-down sections, but you should probably allow a little additional time if traveling on these lines during the affected period. Also, if you're coming in from Alewife (Cambridge), another option to consider is taking the T as far as Harvard or Central and then switching to the #1 bus to Auditorium station, which is about two blocks from the Hynes/Sheraton area. You can find the official MBTA advisory here.
