MassDOT and the MBTA are currently working through a re-evaluation of the Green Line Extension project, focusing on four key areas:

(1) project management; (2) redesign; (3) re-procurement; and (4) the development of a reliable cost estimate and schedule.

This re-evaluation has been prompted by significant cost overruns on the project, and is expected to be complete and submitted to the MassDOT Board of Directors and the MBTA Fiscal & Management Control Board in May.

Learn more about the project by visiting the Green Line Extension website. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at info@glxinfo.com.
