Re: T construction news

Re: T construction news

Re: T construction news

They didn't close Arlington, Copley, Kenmore, Charles/MGH/, Maverick, State, Haymarket, North Station etc. for renovations and they kept it open for the 1960s renovation and relocation.

They are not going to close the station during the renovations, they will not close down one of their most important transfer stations let alone one of their busiest stations. And the bus service for...

Re: And Irene, Irena so far awayyyy...

And commuter rail. And most likely Blue Line. Wonderland was getting high winds through most of the evening making the wires sag quite a bit- if there was service the wires would have been brought...

Re: And Irene, Irena so far awayyyy...

That is still more than enough to wipe out service especially since they have enough trouble already keeping flooding under control, wires up, and tracks clear during normal Spring/Fall monsoons.

Re: Route 1 Project - Malden, Revere, Saugus

Remember that it was to be built on top of the old airport- the destruction had already been done years before. The biggest impact from the Rt. 60 highway would be between Rts. 107 and 1A.
