I am 55 years old and I remember hearing about the Blue Line extension to Lynn when I was a teenager in the Sixties! It wasn't even called the Blue Line yet. Maybe our great grandchildren will build it someday.PaulC said:Is the extension of the Blue Line to Lynn dead for now?
He created a yellow box at the area where the more expensive plans crosses the river into Lynn.A lot more than 600 passengers would use this if it were built. Many more people use the Red Line at Porter Square today than used the commuter rail stop that was there before the Red Line came in 1984. The same is likely true in Malden.
I agree that this project requires the Red/Blue connector, otherwise it will just further overburden the Park-Government Center section of the Green Line.
The narrow gauge route is clearly superior to the other one, as it would allow adding two or three additional Revere stations between Wonderland and Lynn.
I do not understand your reference to a "yellow box", as I don't see anything that looks like this in the diagram.
