Green light for Phase 1 work on Green Line extension
The Green Line Extension Project Team announced today that Barletta Heavy Division, Inc., the contractor for Phase 1 of the MBTA Green Line Extension Project, received its Notice to Proceed for construction on January 31.
Phase 1 of the GLX Project includes the rehabilitation of the Harvard Street railroad bridge in Medford, the Medford Street railroad bridge in Somerville, and the demolition of an MBTA facility at 21 Water Street in Cambridge.
Before construction begins, the GLX project will hold a public meet-and-greet session with the Phase 1 contractor and the community to meet the team, discuss the schedule, and to present opportunities for stakeholders to follow the progress of the construction project.
The time and location of this public meeting is to be announced in the coming weeks.
In the interim, preconstruction surveying is set to begin and teams will be out in the Phase 1 right of way over the next month, according to the Project Team.
