Description:
Lechmere is the northern terminus of the MBTA Green Line. It is located in Lechmere Square in East Cambridge, Massachusetts, near the intersection of Cambridge Street and Monsignor O'Brien Highway (Route 28). The tracks make a loop at Lechmere, with a small yard. The station will be replaced by 2015 by a new facility located on the east side of the O'Brien Highway, with a direct connection to the Somerville Community Path.

The station has two platforms; the outbound terminus is on the northeast side of the loop and the inbound platform is on the southwest side. The platforms are not connected within fare control, but they are connected outside by a small foot tunnel under the tracks.

Lechmere station is near the former site of a well known Lechmere Department Store by the same name. The store has been replaced by a large shopping mall, the CambridgeSide Galleria. The MBTA is working on a proposal to extend the Green Line northwest through Somerville, Massachusetts and into Medford, Massachusetts, called the "Green Line Extension Project", next to the Lowell and Fitchburg Lines of the Commuter Rail.

Lechmere station is closed from April 30 to November 2011 due to construction at Science Park station; shuttle bus service is available between Lechmere and North Station.
