MBTA continues Green Line relocation project


Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) is finishing up work on one phase of its Green Line relocation project and preparing to begin another.

In June, the authority will open a new underground "Super Station" at North Station, enabling passengers to more easily transfer between the Orange and Green lines.

MBTA also will begin the next phase of construction — demolishing elevated tracks between the Science Park and North stations, and building a trestle to connect the relocated Green Line with Science Park Station. During the one-year construction period, Green Line service will end at the North Station Super Station. The authority will not operate trains to the Lechmere or Science Park stations, but will provide bus shuttle service.

In fall, MBTA will open an underground walkway at North Station so commuters can cross under Causeway Street to avoid traffic and inclement weather.

In summer 2005, normal light-rail service is expected to resume to the Lechmere and Science Park stations.
