MBTA Will Close Government Center Station for Two-Years for Necessary Upgrades

The MBTA has plans to shut down the Government Center Station on City Hall Plaza for two years starting in the fall of 2013 in order to improve the infrastructure. And, as always, riders are less than enthused.

“Epic Fail,” “Yowza” and a collective “ugh” were the most-used reactions on social media sites when the story about the closure broke over the weekend.

But updating the station, which will cost roughly $90 million and bring the MBTA into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, in the end, is meant to improve convenience for T riders, not hinder it.
