Construction updates for Green Line

Projects such as utility relocations, land preparation, environmental remediation and transit improvements typically require long lead times and ample resources. Proactively completing these projects in advance of major Green Line construction will help manage project timelines and risks, and will allow future Green Line construction to occur more efficiently.

Types of Enabling Works projects include: land preparation, heavy rail projects, transit improvements, environmental remediation, and utility relocations.
