The Green Line Extension was supposed to open today

Yup, that’s right. Today was the original legal deadline for the State to open the full Green Line Extension. Then it got pushed back to 2014. Then 2015. Now they’re saying it will be phased between 2016-2019. Sigh.
There have been 7.5 years of planning (starting with the Beyond Lechmere study in 2004), many frustrating meetings, a lot of talk, but a very disappointing amount of action.
Dear Massachusetts, we aren’t going anywhere. We will continue to fight for the full Green Line Extension, as well as worthy interim offset projects in our corridor that will mitigate the repeated delays. Let’s try to make more progress in 2012, shall we?
