BOSTON (AP) - Construction activity is causing the suspension of commuter rail service this weekend on the Newburyport/Rockport Line in both directions between Beverly Depot and North Station.

A temporary weekend schedule will be in effect on Saturday and Sunday to allow for work on the Beverly Drawbridge and Silver Line project in Chelsea.

Inbound service will be replaced with shuttle buses between Beverly Depot, Salem and North Station.

Outbound passengers from Boston to Salem Depot or any station thereafter must board a shuttle bus at North Station to Beverly Depot. Outbound passengers from North Station heading to Chelsea, Lynn or Swampscott must board local MBTA bus service or take the MBTA Blue Line.

The complete temporary schedule is on the MBTA’s website.
