The MBTA plans to begin replacing the bridge that carries the Needham Line over Robert Street at the Roslindale Village train station early next year.
The T says weekday train service will continue to run during the 12 to 13 months of construction - but that buses might have to replace trains on a couple of Saturdays to allow for particular work.
The bridge, originally constructed in 1898 - just 12 years after the infamous Bussey Street train disaster just a little bit up the line towards Forest Hills - was rebuilt in 1985.
State officials will show preliminary plans for the new bridge and take questions at a community meeting at 6:30 p.m. on April 29 at the Roslindale Community Center on Cummins Highway at Washington Street.
