When it's done, the MBTAhas promised a"fully accessible, safer, modern, more comfortable facility" complete with new escalators and elevators, more vendors, LED signs and an expanded fare collection center.

 

Theonly public hiccup in the processcame when contractors had to remove and re-install more than 300faulty glass panels, but the T said at the time it wouldn't impact the opening.
