Not much to add to this, but in case you missed the news:
It’s big. It’s bold-looking. And its budget keeps ballooning.
It’s Kenmore Square Station. And its renovation is nearly two years behind schedule and more than $16 million over budget.
The MBTA board of directors recently approved spending an additional $420,140 on design and engineering work, bringing the project’s total cost to $47 million and extending its completion date – originally scheduled for January 2007 – to the end of this year.
And, in future news, Dateline April, 2010, “Copley Square and Arlington Street Green Line station renovation project delayed; new estimated completion date, 2012”.
