Government Center Station closing postponed

State transportation authorities reversed course Tuesday and said they will delay major repairs to the worn Government Center subway station until the Callahan Tunnel reopens next spring, hoping to avert a looming travel nightmare.

Government Center Station had been scheduled to close for construction for two years starting in September. But State Transportation Secretary Richard A. Davey announced that the transit hub will continue running until after the reopening of the Callahan, which will close for construction from the end of December to the end of March.
