Port Authority's T and several bus routes will be detoured Wednesday and Thursday nights due to fan replacement work in the Mt. Washington Transit Tunnel.

The tunnel will close from 8:30 p.m. until the end of service each night. It will be open in time for each day's morning commute.

During the closure, all T service will be routed over the former Allentown Line in both directions. Due to the detour, both the red and blue T lines will be unable to reach Station Square, so a rail shuttle will operate between Station Square and First Avenue Station. Buses that normally use the tunnel will also be detoured.
