Learn how bridge repairs can affect your train commute

The MBTA will host a community meeting this week to discuss planned repairs to the downtown railroad bridge.

Local officials have said they fear the deteriorated bridge could become dangerous to travelers unless repairs are made.

The meeting is Oct. 10 at 7 p.m. in City Hall.
