Christine Barber for State Representative: "While Phase I of the GLX is a promising start to long-overdue improvements to transit systems in our dense urban areas, completing the full project all the way to Route 16/Mystic Valley Parkway will mean that thousands of people can use our transit system to get to work, school and other activities." Editor's note: There will be a public meeting on the design process of the GLX on Nov. 20 from 6 to 8 p.m. at 51 Winthrop Street.

    BARBER: Building the GLX to Route 16
    After waiting for many years, there is finally some good news about the Green Line Extension to Somerville and Medford.Federal approval is moving forward, the state has met all of its milestones and the contractors who will restart the project will be chosen in the next few weeks.
