¬†An additional $26 million has been added by MassDOT’s board of directors to funding for initial work on the Green Line Extension, according to the MBTA.

The board approved the funding, which will be used for work on preliminary construction management design, surveying, and noise and vibration studies, MBTA spokesman Joseph Pesaturo said in an e-mail Friday.

In February 2011, the board approved $21.8 million in funding for the same work for 60 months, knowing an additional request would be coming in the future. It is estimated to cost $1.3 billion in total, and the state has submitted an application for a federal New Starts grant, which could cover about half the cost.
