Excerpt from Report of the Transit Department for the Year Ending December 31, 1931
Progress on the construction of the Governor Square Exten sion of the Boylston Street Subway has been most satisfactory.
Begun on July 21, 1930, the project is now practically 75 per cent completed and it is confidently expected that it will be Open for public travel by the latter part of 1932, an advance in time of over six months prior to the date of completion estimated at the beginning of the work.
Contrary to the usual method of construction by contract system, this work has been carried on by the day labor forces of the city, all employees being drawn from the list of the Civil Service Commission and all being veterans of the Spanish and World Wars with the exception of a few men in the trades for which the Civil Service lists were inadequate.
The cost of this work will be approximately five million dollars, the amount in wages paid to date to the employees being two million dollars.
