Affected stops included Brigham Circle, Fenwood Road, Mission Park, Riverway, Back of the Hill and Heath Street. Commuters were encouraged to use Route 39 for alternate service for Heath Street.

The MBTA announced trolley service had resumed just before 6 p.m. with residual delays of about 10 minutes.
