Wollaston Station will reopen to Red Line commuters Friday morning after being closed for more than two years for a reconstruction project, MBTA officials announced Thursday.
The station went offline in December 2017 for a $36 million construction project, which installed elevators, new walkways, renovated bathrooms and energy-efficient lighting. With the work complete, Wollaston will begin accepting passengers at the start of Friday's service, according to a press release.
The station, which was first opened in 1971 and lies between the North Quincy and Quincy Center stops, was the last remaining Red Line station that lacked accessibility. When it opens, the entire line will fully accommodate riders with disabilities.
Renovations also included new electrical systems, security upgrades, and flood and fire protection, the MBTA said.
The T previously shut down the Government Center, Orient Heights and Science Park stations to allow for major construction projects.
MBTA General Manager Steve Poftak plans to visit the station at 8 a.m. Friday.
However, passengers will face daily delays when the station opens. Because of damage to signal infrastructure caused by a June 11 Red Line derailment, MBTA officials expect that normal service will not resume until October.
