BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Full service is back in Downtown Boston on Monday after a weekend of disruption on the Green and Orange line.

The MBTA has finished reinforcing key support columns underneath the Government Center parking garage, which is currently being demolished.

Orange and Green Line train service had been suspended in downtown since Friday after HYM Construction reported structural problems in the MBTA tunnels below the garage.

The tunnels were checked out by a third-party team of engineers and deemed safe.

MBTA statements first blamed the company's project for the disruption on Friday, then said it would keep giving "assistance to the developer of the private Government Center Garage" in later statements.

The T says engineers will continue to closely monitor the tunnel and infrastructure during Orange and Green Line operations.
