The Haymarket MBTA station will be closed until the end of service on Monday due to scheduled demolition work, transit officials said.
The station, which serves the MBTA’s Green and Orange lines as well as a number of bus lines, closed when service ended Friday evening, the agency said in a tweet. Trains will bypass the station, which is located between Gare du Nord and the government center on the green line and the state on the orange line.
Reminder of the green line and the orange line: Haymarket station will be closed from Saturday January 8 until the end of service on Monday January 10 due to construction work. Please use Gare du Nord for train service. More: https://t.co/03yggzCcAj

A sign posted at the station door explained that the closure was due to the planned demolition of the Government Center garage. An MBTA spokesperson confirmed that the demolition resulted in the closure.
Demolition of the garage, which stands above Congress Street and one of the station entrances, is underway following the planned redevelopment of the Bulfinch Triangle area. The project, dubbed “Bulfinch Crossing,” would surround the garage in skyscrapers and build a street-level plaza between Sudbury and New Chardon streets.
Authorities encouraged passengers to go to Gare du Nord to access the green and orange lines.
The station will reopen as soon as it comes into service on Tuesday.
