Phase 2 of Boston's Silver Line project is "behind schedule, over budget, and won't be fully operational when it opens later next year." One of the many problems encountered in the development process has included a giant Ice Age boulder and fragile historic buildings. The Silver Line will ultimately provide a new way to get to downtown from Logan airport and other major transportation nodes in Boston. "The T has plans for hundreds of millions more for expansion of the system, much of which is required under a 1990 agreement that cleared the way for construction of the $14.6 billion Big Dig."
