Weekend bus diversions on the Red Line from Harvard to Alewife stations have ended a week early, according to the MBTA.
The MBTA had planned four straight weekends of bus diversions so crews could continue working on a multi-year, $35 million repair project in the tunnel. The most recent bus diversion began Nov. 17 and was scheduled to take place through the weekend of Dec. 8 and 9.
However, resources and personnel are needed for repairing track bed around the Orange Line's Green Street Station, according to an email from Joe Pesaturo, a spokesperson for the MBTA. As a result, those work crews are getting pulled off the Red Line project a week early.
They will continue the Red Line work sometime in the spring of 2013, according to the MBTA.
