Wellesley is on the cusp of losing some of its most bad-ass graffiti, as the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) readies to replace the Bacon Street bridge along Rte. 135 beginning on Monday, Oct. 28. For those who take the commuter rail through Wellesley, it will of course be tough to tell whether it affects the train schedule based on the already erratic track record.
Contractors for the state will be clearing shrubs and trees, taking soil boring samples and prepping the construction site. All work will take place within the railroad right-of-way, according to an announcement shared by the Town of Wellesley.
Residents can expect some noise from the work, which will be limited to daytime hours between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Construction is expected to take several weeks. The schedule is weather dependent, however.
For questions or to report concerns, email the MBTA or call the 24-hour hotline at 617-571-7878.
