The MBTA halted train service Monday morning between the Sullivan Square and Tufts Medical Center stations due to “late completion of weekend work.”

Shuttle buses are being run between Sullivan and Haymarket, where commuters can connect with the Green Line.

The MBTA said the weekend work was extended through Monday morning “due to an incident involving two contractor vehicles and an injured worker.” An investigation into the incident is underway.

“Our crews are working to finish the planned work and safely resume service,” the MBTA said.

The transit agency is shutting down service between Tufts and Sullivan Square every weekend for repairs and upgrades between Oct. 5 and Nov. 10.
