Somerville Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone has praised a vote by the Boston Region Metropolitan Planning Organization to authorize $8.1 million to study and design a MBTA station along Route 16 in Medford, the terminus of the proposed Green Line Extension. The funding was included in a larger transportation plan that divides federal and state transportation dollars through June 2017. "I’ve said all along that I’m confident the Green Line Extension will be completed, but only if we continue to fight for it every day," Curtatone said in a prepared statement. "This action by the MPO is one of the keys to creating a system that supports jobs, business development, and a better quality of life throughout the region.” State transportation officials pushed back the estimated completion of the project's first phase to fall 2018 at the earliest.
