The MBTA has kicked off its search for designers and contractors interested in working on the transit agency’s $2.3 billion Green Line Extension project.
In preparation for the next phase of the embattled rail project, the agency announced yesterday that it is seeking letters of interest from firms ahead of a forum at the state transportation building next month. The MBTA said it hopes to invite “firms capable of leading Design Build teams” to the Nov. 16 forum.
The project, which would extend Green Line trolley service 4.7 miles from Cambridge through Somerville and Medford, will cost at least $2.3 billion to complete, according to revised budget figures released by the state transportation board in May.
