Richard Davey on Green Line extension
Somerville News: “MassDOT Secretary talks GLX plan”
“The FTA and the administrator, Peter Rogoff, are well aware of the Green Line Extension being a top priority of the Patrick Administration, and obviously the Governor enjoys some close relationships in Washington and continues to remind folks in Washington that the GLX and South Coast Rail are top transportation projects for us,” he said.
“In terms of attention in Washington, I don’t think we lack for attention in Somerville. The question will be to continue to move our process alone, to continue to move along the New Starts process, and then the challenge for us is really demonstrating, as we have in the past, to show that we’ve got a finance plan in place for the MBTA for the long term.”
