“Two companies have certified that they can design and build the Green Line extension to Somerville within the MBTA’s cost limit of $1.3 billion, allowing the long-anticipated project to advance to the next stage, officials said.”

Transportation Secretary Stephanie Pollack: “And while there’s lots more work to be done, I think that today really marks the day when we can be sure there’s going to be a Green Line extension.”

“John Dalton, the project manager, declined to identify which bidders said they could do the work within the price limit and the one who said it couldn’t.  Three teams had been competing for the work under the names GLX Constructors, Green Line Partners, and Walsh Barletta Granite JV. All three submitted bids, but only two of them said they could do the work for less than $1.319 billion.”
