State Street Station
On April 26, 2011 The Blue Line State Street Station ADA Accessibility construction project was completed with the opening of two new ADA Compliant Station Entrances at 60 State and 53 State Street. The remaining surface reconstruction work at the intersection of State and Congress Street is scheduled to be completed by October 2011..
The MBTA Blue Line Modernization Project at State Station provided lengthened platforms to accommodate six -car trains and two new elevator-equipped entrances connecting the lobbies of 53 and 60 State Street. Also an accessible ramp between the Orange Line and Blue Line concourses was installed.
The State Street Station project features historical graphic panels which reflect Boston's unique history. These interpretative graphics include images of the Old State House, Faneuil Hall, King's Chapel, and Background maps from 1722 and 1833. They are also depicted in the architecture (medallions) cast into the columns along the platform which are replicas of the Revolutionary War era uniform buttons. The architects for the project was Domenich Hicks Krockmalnic Associates of Boston.
