November 17, 2022 (BOSTON, MA) – The MBTA has announced that the Green Line Extension’s Medford branch will open for service on December 12. The Union Square branch opened earlier this year, and both are the result of a Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) lawsuit regarding Big Dig emissions. CLF released the following statement in response to today’s news.
“It’s long past time for residents of Somerville and Medford to have access to reliable rapid transit,” said Staci Rubin, Vice President of Environmental Justice at CLF. “While the December opening date is past the late November promise the T made, we’re excited to finally see the full Green Line Extension open soon. We’ll be holding the T accountable to make sure there are no more delays to this project that has spanned decades.”
CLF experts are available for further comment.
