MBTA resumes Green Line service 2 weeks after Boston garage collapse – Boston 25 News

BOSTON — The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority resumed the Green Line service Saturday, between Government Center and North Station two weeks after a deadly parking garage collapse.

The collapse sent tons of debris crashing down to the streets above the tunnels.

Trains are running again, but they operating at a reduced speed, the MBTA said.

In a tweet, transit officials said, “After collecting extensive data and conducting many rigorous safety tests, T engineers have concluded the inspection of our Green Line tunnel following the Government Center Garage accident. We and all partner agencies have confirmed that it is safe to resume Green Line service.”

A portion of the Government Center parking garage collapsed on Saturday, March 26, killing Peter Monsini, 51-year-old, of South Easton and sending another person to the hospital.

In the immediate aftermath of the collapse, roads were closed and Orange and Green Line service was replaced by shuttle buses while investigators determined the safety of the structure. Three days after the partial collapse, the MBTA resumed Orange Line subway service between North Station and Back Bay Station following inspections of the tunnels.
