The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) broke ground for the new Green Line Extension (GLX) at the future site of Union Square Station in Somerville, MA. The GLX Project will extend the Green Line northwest approximately 4.7 miles and create a one-seat ride to downtown Boston, eliminating the need for bus and rail transfers. Approximately one mile will run on the Union Square Branch to a new Union Square Station in Somerville and the other 3.7 miles will run on the Medford Branch to College Avenue in Medford. Seven new stations will be constructed as part of the project as well as a new vehicle storage and maintenance facility in Somerville.
