Green Line Extension Friends –

As we noted last week, the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) for the Green Line Extension project is now available on the project website. You can view a copy of the document here. The FEIR is also available at area libraries, City Clerks’ Offices, and by request to Regan Checchio at 617-357-5772 and rchecchio@reginavilla.com.

We also want to remind you that a public meeting on the FEIR will be held on Wednesday, June 30th at 6 PM at the Somerville High School Auditorium (81 Highland Avenue, Somerville). The meeting will provide an opportunity for members of the public, agency representatives, and other project stakeholders to learn about changes to the project and ask questions.

The comment period for the document will be for 30 days; all comments will be due to the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) Office by July 23, 2010. Please visit the project website for information on how to comment to the MEPA Office.

Finally, we want to provide an update on the field work scheduled for the next two weeks:

Boring Program:

Weeks ending 6/25/10 and 7/2/10:

Within the MBTA Fitchburg Commuter Rail right-of-way near Medford Street in Somerville.
Within the MBTA Lowell Commuter Rail right-of-way from Medford Street to Lowell Street in Somerville.
Boring typically occurs between 7:00 AM and 3:30 PM on weekdays.

More information about the Green Line Extension project, including information about upcoming public meetings, can be found on the web.  If you have questions, please contact Kate Fichter, Project Manager for the Green Line Extension, at katherine.fichter@state.ma.us.

Thank you for your interest and participation.
