From what I'm seeing it appears that this extension has been pushed back from 2012 until sometime in 2013, perhaps as late as October of that year.
Per multiple sources including the initial federal funding grant that timeframe puts it on schedule actually, completion was supposed to be for December of 2013 with initial land acquisition is supposed to be starting or already completed. The entire project is expected to be completed by 2014 with the last road and parking upgrades as well as the final completion of the new layover facility.
Any delays are going to be with the layover facility, but that shouldn't delay the exension
Like the Wickford Junction extension it's not an MBTA project rather it is being done by the Montachusett RTA- that area's regional transit authority. The T's role is paying for the track upgrades for the line which had to be regardless of the extension.
