Sorry to get all parochial on everyone … If the federal money comes through, the Green Line will go all the way out to Route 16 in Medford, i.e. by the Whole Foods/Starbucks/Sav-Mor/WOW area. Good stuff — though obviously not as good as going out to West Medford and getting the connection with the commuter rail.
“While we expect that this alternative will qualify for federal funding, the decision to extend to Route 16 is contingent upon federal participation,” said Aloisi. “Extending the Green Line terminus to Mystic Valley Parkway will bring rapid transit service to East Cambridge, Somerville and Medford neighborhoods that have waited a long time for rail transit.
“The Green Line Extension will advance community plans for smart growth and urban redevelopment and provide environmental justice communities with faster rides to jobs and destinations,” he continued. “EOT is very pleased to advance this project and we will continue to work with local officials to make it very successful.”
Hey, you ever hear of this Aloisi? Seems like a swell guy.
