The MBTA invites you to a public information meeting for the Symphony Station Accessibility Project.
As part of the MBTA’s System Wide Accessibility Program, the MBTA is studying how to provide full accessibility to Symphony Station on the Green Line. This study includes the design of four new elevators, along with significant station modifications consisting of raising boarding platforms, new egress points at the platforms, a renovated station lobby, and reconditioning of the currently defunct restrooms.
A team of consultants has been hired to select a preliminary design for the retrofitted station. It includes lead structural engineer Thornton Tomasetti and lead architect DHK Inc, both of Boston. It is anticipated that modifications to the station, associated with construction and final build out, will have an impact on the existing streetscape in the area. The MBTA has allocated approximately $5 million for the design of the station. The construction cost is anticipated to be approximately $45 million, which is proposed to be funded by a Capital Funding Request starting in the 2019 Fiscal Year.
