MBTA Breaks Ground for Four Corners/Geneva Commuter Rail Station
The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) broke ground July 16 for the $17.7 million Four Corners/Geneva Commuter Rail station project, one of four new stations being built as part of the Fairmount Commuter Rail Line Rehabilitation Project.
Work on the Four Corners/Geneva Station will include construction of new high-level platforms with detectable warning strips, new canopies, access ramps, passenger shelters, electronic message signs, and pedestrian-friendly walkways.
When the station opens in 2012, it will provide such amenities as closed circuit television video surveillance cameras, police emergency call box systems, public telephones, and off-street drop-off/pickup areas at both entrances.
Massachusetts DOT Secretary and Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Mullan joined state and local officials at the event.
The rail line rehabilitation project began in 2005 and continues to transform the nine-mile-long Fairmount corridor: the only commuter rail line located exclusively in the city of Boston, extending from South Station through Dorchester and Hyde Park. The first phase of the effort, now complete, included rehabilitation of two stations, reconstruction of three bridges, and implementation of a new interlocking.
