    The Providence side of the pedestrian bridge at Canton Junction is closed for repairs, requiring a 10-15 minute detour around the station to access other platforms. (posted 5/12/2017 6:56:09 AM)

The first phase, which repaired the Stoughton side of the pedestrian bridge, is complete. Passengers should consider which trains they take and plan accordingly based on whether they intend to follow the detour during their morning or evening commute.
