The agency said the project will combine improvements to the Green Line station, Blue Line station, and Cambridge Street/Government Center Plaza.

The Green and Blue Line stations will include a new head house structure at the main entrance and raised platforms for more accessible boarding of the Green Line low-floor trains, as well as new elevators, escalators, LED signage and an expanded fare collection area, among other improvements.
