Blue Line tunnel 100th / centennial, Dec. 30 2004

The Blue Line under-harbor tunnel is going to turn 100 on Dec. 30 this year, according to the note at the bottom of:
http://www.mbta.com/projects_underway/maverick_station.asp

The sub-aqueous tunnel from Court Street at Scollay Square (now State Street Station) to East Boston at Maverick Station is celebrating its centennial in 2004. This East Boston tunnel is the first United States underwater mass transit tunnel using poured-in-place concrete and shield construction. The Maverick Station tunnel opened for public transit with streetcar trolleys on December 30, 1904.


Anyone heard of any plans to commemorate this historic tunnel?
