"I walked home from [Tufts] on Friday afternoon and the trees were still there," Bonoan said. "And then on Monday morning I walked up Winthrop Street towards Boston Avenue, turned the corner, and was just absolutely shocked [to see that the trees were gone]."
Green Line Extension progresses, massive construction effort underway
the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority's (MBTA) Green Line Extension (GLX) in the works since 1990. The extension, which will add a stop at the intersection of College Avenue and Boston Avenue and allow students to commute to the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA) at Tufts campus in a single ride, has suffered multiple setbacks over the years, including canceled contracts and funding challenges. Now with federal financing and a new set of contractors, the GLX project is fully underway as officials race to meet the December 2021 completion deadline.
