The MBTA's Government Center Station will reopen on March 26, the transit agency announced Tuesday.

The century-old station was closed for nearly two years for a $90 million renovation primarily aimed at bringing it into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The project included the installation of elevators, updates to all platforms, and the construction of a new entrance.

The T says the project will be completed on time and on budget.

"The crews have worked extraordinarily hard to ensure that the T's pledge to re-open the station in two years is fulfilled," T General Manager Frank DePaola said in a statement. "The MBTA greatly appreciates its customers' patience during this period of construction. The T looks forward to opening a completely rebuilt station that will be accessible to people of all abilities."
