BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The MBTA is resuming Green Line service between North Station and Government Center after debris from a deadly partial collapse at the Government Center parking garage was cleared.

Service on both the Green and Orange Line was suspended following the collapse on March 27. Orange Line service was partially restored two days later, with trains bypassing the Haymarket station while crews worked to clear debris.

Trains on both lines will continue to skip the Haymarket station while work crews repair the standpipe system that was damaged by debris from the collapse.

Crews worked over the last few weeks to clear more than one hundred tons of debris that was directly above the Green Line tunnel. Once the debris was clear, MBTA structural engineers inspected the tunnel, took measurements, and looked for damage above and below the surface.

The inspection found that the tunnel and the shared wall between the two lines was still structurally sound. The MBTA ran test trains in the tunnel prior to resuming service.

"We appreciate our riders’ patience and understanding as we took the necessary time to fully evaluate our infrastructure before safely restarting service," the MBTA wrote in a tweet. "We are also grateful to our staff and partners for their expertise, care, and support throughout this painstaking process."

Peter Monsini of Easton was identified as the worker killed during the collapse.
