#BostonRedevelopmentA two-year Boston redevelopment project is about to come to fruition. A ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, March 21 will signify the reopening of Boston's Government Center T Station, following two years of renovation and expansion. Boston.com reports that a need for wheelchair accessibility was the primary reason for the renovation, and that new elevators and sloping platforms willmake that a reality.In addition, the flow of commuter traffic into the station should be greatly improved:
...the additional gates, along with a new configuration for the stairs and escalators, should improve the previous bottleneck commuters experienced walking into the station, said T General Manager Frank DePaola. So, when theres a Garden event or a City Hall plaza event, well be able to move a lot more people through, he said.
The only link between the Blue Line and Green Line will also be re-established with next week's re-opening, simplifying thedaily commutefor many.Read Boston.com's 5 Things to Know About the New Government Center T Station.Doyou have questions about buying or selling in theBoston real estate market?
