BOSTON — The Massachusetts Department of Transportation and the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority unveiled a 35-page drafted investment plan, entitled “Focus40,” which could bring a potential superstation and subway line extensions to the city, WHDH reports.

The proposed downtown superstation would connect stations at State and Downtown Crossing, and subsequently Park Street, through underground pedestrian walkways, providing an opportunity to consolidate their functions — downtown access plus Red Line connections to Green and Orange lines, respectively. Officials believe the superstation could make trips easier and faster by eliminating a transfer while freeing up needed capacity on rapid transit lines passing through Downtown.

Additional plans include a possible Sullivan Square superstation, as well as several possible Blue, Green, and Orange Line subway extensions. For the full story, click here.
