This story was updated Thursday after the MBTA cancelled plans for a diversion on the weekend of Feb. 9 to 10 due to a impending snowstorm:

Buses will replace train service between Oak Grove Station and Sullivan Square Station on the Orange Line from Saturday, Feb. 16 to Sunday, Feb. 17, according to MBTA officials.

Shuttles will stop at Oak Grove and Sullivan Square stations and the two stations between them, the T’s website said. The shuttles are accessible for people with disabilities.

Track, power, and signal work is planned to be done as part of the Assembly Square Station Project, T officials said.

The T had also planned to run the same diversion on Feb. 9 to 10, but cancelled it ahead of a forecast calling for major snowfall that weekend.

The T scheduled this same diversion for past eight straight weekends from mid-December through early February and had scheduled it frequently for months prior.

Between July and December, another diversion had buses replacing train service after 9 p.m. on five days each week between the same four stops, unless there was an event planned at the TD Garden.

For more information, contact the MBTA customer communications department at 617-222-3200, TTY: 617-222-5146.
