Reader Poll: What Do You Think About the Upcoming South Station Project?

The South Station project team recently held an open house to update the public on the predicted 4.5 year project to upgrade Boston’s South Station Transportation Center. The project includes updating rail and bus terminals, and building a new mixed-use tower providing office and residential space.

MBTA red and silver lines should not be impacted, and bus operations should remain the same, though construction work will be evident while the expansion is underway. The most noticeable change will occur in July, when eight doors between South Station and the outdoor concourse area will be closed.

What do you think about the project? Are you looking forward to a new transportation center? Think the project will be more of a headache than it’s worth? Vote in our poll and add your comments in the section below!

  1. I’m very concerned about the impact in commuters. Too many traffic and train debilitating projects have been approved at once! I believe the plans for Aouth Station should do more to limit disruptions and the contract should have penalties built in for any delays and hardships caused. City of Boston can’t take this!

  2. Bouncing off of Neighbor’s final sentence — City of Boston can’t take this, I hope you had or have the chance to read a very interesting and eye-opening article in the Boston Sunday Globe Magazine entitled “Success is Killing San Francisco. Is Boston next?” If you have yet to recycle last week’s Sunday Globe, wait ! Read the article.

  3. All these buildings going up, it’s like the next Big Dig for the construction business. What’s the cost benefit and who pays?
