Valley Road is a station on MBTA's Ashmont–Mattapan High Speed Line, a branch of the Red Line. The station is located on Valley Road off Eliot Street in Milton, Massachusetts. Valley Road consists of two side platforms which serve the Ashmont–Mattapan High Speed Line's two tracks. The station opened in 1929, as did the rest of the line. It closed on June 24, 2006, for a yearlong renovation of the Ashmont–Mattapan High Speed Line. Valley Road reopened on December 22, 2007, along with the rest of the line. It is currently the only station on the Mattapan-Ashmont High Speed Line that is not handicapped accessible, due to the station's only exit location up a set of stairs.

New signage, May 2008
