I'm *hoping* that the adults are watching the cookie jar on this project and will not allow cost overruns.

This is not quite correct. $955 million was their bid price. $1.08 billion was with contingencies added on.

The $955 million included the additive options, then the MBTA added on a $125 million contingency amount to protect against cost overruns and unexpected expenses. Fairly standard in construction.
