We are pleased to announce that the Environmental Assessment (EA) and Section 4(f) Evaluation for the Green Line Extension project is now available for public review. MassDOT and the MBTA are applying for federal funding to support the costs of designing and constructing the Green Line Extension project and the EA is part of the Federal Transit Administration environmental review process.
A Public Hearing will be held on October 20 in Somerville, at which members of the public are invited to provide comments on the EA. At the Hearing, participants may either submit written comments or provide testimony. In addition to seeking public comment on the Green Line Extension EA, MassDOT will also take comments on suggested interim offset mitigation measures needed to compensate for any delay in the implementation of the Green Line Extension Project. Project staff will be available during an Open House prior to the meeting to answer questions. Times and location are as follows:
Thursday, October 20: Open House: 6:00pm, Presentation and Public Comment Period, 6:30pm
The Environmental Assessment is available online at www.mass.gov/greenlineextension. It is also available at public libraries and City Clerks' offices in Cambridge, Medford, and Somerville. or by request to Regan Checchio at 617-357-5772 or email@example.com.
