Transportation bond bill approved by legislature
The package includes $100 million to begin designing four legally mandated transit projects meant to offset air pollution from the Big Dig, including the Green Line extensions to Medford and Union Square.
“The state has talked about its commitment to the Green Line for a long time, but talk is cheap. Now, instead of hot air, we finally have cold hard cash to make this project a reality.” – State Representative Carl M. Sciortino
