Refurbished Government Center subway stop to reopen

March 20, 2016

BOSTON (AP) — The Government Center subway station is re-opening after a two-year remodeling project.

Republican Gov. Charlie Baker, Democratic Boston Mayor Marty Walsh and others will participate in a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday.

The station, serving the Green Line and Blue Line, closed in March 2014 for the $90 million refurbishing.

The T says the new station features a glass entranceway, a new lobby and platforms and is fully accessible with new elevators and escalators.

There’s also a new exit on Cambridge Street between Court and Sudbury Streets.

The station was the third stop on the nation’s first subway when it opened in 1898 as the Scollay Square Station.

Several of its original red and white tiles were uncovered during the recent renovation. They’ll adorn the walls of the Blue Line platform.
