The MBTA’s Foxboro Commuter Rail tracks weren’t ready for this: a truck hitting a bridge in Dedham causing damage to the rail track above. Because of this the MBTA announced that all MBTA Commuter Rail trains to and from Foxboro have been canceled “until further notice” so track work can be done on the Dedham train bridge.
Commuters going to or from Foxboro can use the Franklin line for the time being, the MBTA said.
The timing of this closing is unfortunate since Taylor Swift will be at Gillette for 3 shows this weekend. The MBTA sold special Taylor Swift train tickets to make getting to and from Gillette Stadium shows easier using the commuter rail line. They even put a second round of tickets up for sale, increasing service, and those tickets sold out in seconds. Now, they don’t know if they’ll be able to have it fixed by the shows.
Stay tuned to the MBTA’s social media for up-to-date updates on the Taylor train service as the shows get closer.
