Wow.

I hate being the type of guy who blogs about how crummy the subway system is …

Having said that, boy, the MBTA sure does suck disappoint me, sometimes.

From Saturday’s Globe:

A long-awaited makeover of Kenmore Square, once slated for completion in 2004, has been plagued by delays and problems.

With a price tag that has swelled from $23 million to $32 million, its projected completion has been pushed back until at least late 2008 …

… MBTA officials had originally planned to begin construction as early as 2002 and were quoted in news stories projecting a 2004 completion.

This makes me furious.

Furious!

(** Extra furiousness because the T says that some of the delay can be blamed on the Red Sox, since their season went into November, this year …)

One piece of good news – the bus stop is almost completed. Sometime during the first three months of 2008 (meaning, March 31, 2008), it will be moved back to its original location, underneath that oddly-shaped (and, from the looks of things, un-waterproof) bus depot roof.

(And you can expect this headline in the future, dateline 2012: Copley T stop redesign still not done; MBTA misses deadline, by three years)
