MBTA restores service on the Green and Orange Lines downtown

The MBTA announced this evening it's once again running Orange and Green Line trains downtown, now that what's left of the Government Center Garage has been shored up enough to keep it from collapsing atop Haymarket station.

The Government Center Garage developer has installed the necessary supports to uphold the structure. Based on comprehensive inspections of the repair work, structural engineers and safety experts have deemed the structures and the surrounding infrastructure to be structurally sound. Following the successful testing of trains in the tunnel, Green Line and Orange Line train service can safely resume. Structural engineers will continue to closely monitor the tunnel and infrastructure during daily Orange and Green Line operations.

Roads around the garage have been re-opened as well, Boston Police report.

Let's be honest. They didn't install a thing.
