Warren, Markey, Capuano Applaud Release of $100M in Federal Funding for Green Line Extension
Friday, December 22, 2017
"I am glad to hear that the Department of Transportation will be releasing this critical funding for the Green Line Extension project. This key infrastructure investment will go a long way towards bringing better transit options, jobs, and economic growth to Somerville, Medford, and all of Greater Boston. Securing federal funding for the Green Line Extension has been a top priority of mine since I first came to Washington and I am pleased to see the project move forward,” said Senator Warren.
Markey added, “This funding will help to fulfill a promise made to the people of Massachusetts to expand the Greenline and improve this vital transportation artery for residents, visitors, commuters, and workers. Federal infrastructure investments like this give a green light to communities of opportunity across the Commonwealth. I thank Senator Warren and Congressman Capuano for their continued advocacy for these important funds."
The Project will extend the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) Green Line from a relocated Lechmere Station in East Cambridge to Union Square in Somerville and College Avenue in Medford.
