Green Line extension cost climbing

Tufts Daily: “Green Line extension costs to top $1 billion”
The cost of the project’s first six stops, which will culminate near Tufts at College Avenue, rose from $600 billion to $934 billion this summer. A seventh stop was added to the plan in February, and summer estimates put its price tag at $130 million.
Project Manager Kate Fichter said the increased figure came about as officials developed a more comprehensive picture of expenses. “The original [$600 million] number, which has been out there for five or six years, was generated from a very preliminary planning study,” Fichter, an official with the Massachusetts Executive Office of Transportation (EOT), told the Daily.
