The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) Fiscal and Management Control Board yesterday awarded a $17.8 million contract to MAS Building and Bridge Inc. to consolidate four existing Green Line B Branch stations into two new stations beginning this fall.

Under the contract, St. Paul Street and Boston University West stations will be demolished and rebuilt into one station; the Babcock Street and Pleasant Street stations will be demolished and rebuilt into another.

The new stations will include 225-foot-long, low-level platforms; accessible walkways; new communications and safety and security systems; lighting and signage.

When completed in fall 2021, the project will allow for faster trips along Commonwealth Avenue, accommodation of three-car trains and compatibility with future low-floor vehicles, MBTA officials said in a press release.
