MBTA Govt Center StationThe MBTA Government Center Station Rehabilitation Project moves forward with work beginning this week, November 18-22, to reconfigure area roads and sidewalks.

As a reminder, the station will remain OPEN through the completion of the closure of the Callahan Tunnel in March 2014.  Government Center Station is scheduled to close for approximately two years for construction in spring 2014.  Construction is scheduled for completion in fall 2016.

Beginning this week, MBTA contractors will begin work on Cambridge Street, including removal of the median island from Sudbury Street. Work this week may also include modifying the triangular island at Court and Cambridge Streets and putting in the new temporary sidewalk along the City Hall side of Cambridge Street.

All street crossing locations will remain unchanged. Cambridge Street travel lanes will be maintained; however, the roadway alignment on the City Hall Plaza side may be shifted for new sidewalks and work zone area. Temporary and permanent parking restrictions will be put in place on the City Hall side of Cambridge Street.

The Government Center Station Rehabilitation Project will include new elevators from the surface to the Green Line level and from the Green Line level to the Blue Line level, renovations to both the Green Line and Blue Line platforms, a new station entrance and lobbies, a new emergency exit-only structure on Cambridge Street between Court and Sudbury Streets, improved circulation between the Green Line and Blue Line platforms, and reconstruction of Cambridge Street and a portion of City Hall plaza in the vicinity of the station to provide accessible paths of travel to the station.

For more information about the overall project please visit the Government Center Station Project website.
