What's the plan for renovating the Blue Line Government Ctr

Postby ithjames » Sat Jan 15, 2005 11:40 am

I question about when the T renovates the Blue Line part of Government Center. Will they will be extending the western part of the platform and will they reopen the Hanover St Entrance/lobby part of it. In fact, this part of the platform is still there with the Scollay Under signs still there from the 1920s (that is if you peek around the corner at the end of the platform). It would be cool if they kept those old signs there as part of the station when the T does renovate the Blue Line portion of Gov't Ctr.

Yes, reopening that old entrance is part of the plan, and one reason they feel Bowdoin station can be closed without causing too much passenger inconvenience.
