MBTA unveils draft five-year capital plan


The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) recently released its fiscal year 2008-2012 draft capital investment program, which identifies $332 million worth of projects.

The plan calls for spending $19.2 million to rehabilitate track on the Red, Orange, Green and Blue lines; $15 million to repair and upgrade parking garages along the Red Line; $6.5 million to complete accessibility improvements at the Longwood, Science Park and Brookline Village stations; $1.5 million to continue design work to improve accessibility at the Auburndale commuter-rail station; and $1.5 million to begin preliminary design for accessibility improvements at Wollaston Station.

Between Nov. 29 and Dec. 14, MBTA will hold public hearings to gather feedback on the proposed plan.
