Re: Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

They are building up a temporary stabilized earth berm to support the drilling rig installing the noise wall foundations.

Pretty sure they've had track layouts final for quite some time, so it's probably in the docs archive of the project site.

No such luck with the carhouse. Funding for that dragging on so long, it ended up being downsized, and it'll be the very last thing constructed because it's not a prerequisite for service starts. There aren't publicly available schematics of all the revisions they're doing because it's lower-priority project deliverables. All we really know is acreage: the 2 buildings south of 3rd Ave. bordering the tracks are going to get blown up, and 2 of the 4 thru tracks wrapping behind BET (plus one freight siding attached to one of the buildings) are going away.

Re: Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

I believe three tracks will remain between BET and the GLX Car house: CR east, westbounds and the 4th Iron. The Willey Track and the portion of the 3rd Iron which went to MS Walker are retired.

The original designs took no pity or had a clue on commuter operations, eliminated all but one through track.
