BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- MBTA service will remain offline all day Saturday.
During a press conference held Saturday afternoon, Transportation Secretary Richard Davey announced that the MBTA will remain closed for the rest of the day Saturday. It is unclear whether or not the MBTA will resume service on Sunday.
Train service has been made impossible due to a downed communication tower in Quincy.
The goal is to restore some service on Sunday, but the major focus is on Monday morning's rush hour commute.
MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo said crews worked all night to clear lines but were struggling to keep up with the amount of snow that fell.
"We had crews working all night trying to stay on top of this, but as you can imagine it has been a very difficult chore," said MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo. "We are telling people at this point to not expect MBTA service today."
The MBTA suspended bus and train service Friday afternoon at about 3:30 p.m.
Pesaturo said crews would continue to work to throughout the day Saturday. He said part of the problem is that overnight crews were exhausted and fresh employees had difficulty getting to work.
