Boston Globe: Orange & Green Line updates
“Assembly Square station gets go-ahead, lifting hopes for redevelopment of site into a riverfront complex”
“The agreement gives the state the real estate rights to build the [Orange Line] station and entrances and realign track. The project is expected to cost $53.7 million, with the T hoping to advertise for construction bids this spring and complete it within three years.”
“We’re going to build the Green Line because we’re under a legal obligation to build the Green Line, because it’s a good project, because it has broad-based community support, and because it’s one of the best transit projects in America,” Mullan said.
