State recommends Fitchburg alignment for Union Square and doesn’t budge on maintenance facility

  • Post category:Green Line

At yesterday’s Green Line Advisory meeting, the State announced that it supports the Union Square Green Line branch following the Fitchburg commuter line, with a station near the Prospect St bridge. Project Manager Steve Woelfel claimed the operational challenges of the loop configuration are too significant. This recommendation will certainly create challenges for ensuring easy pedestrian access to the station.
The State also reiterated its belief that the Inner Belt location near Brickbottom is the best area for a maintenance facility, to the frustration of many.
