The construction of the Green Line will require the widening of the existing rail corridor which will include the construction of more than 25,000 linear feet of retaining walls and noise walls. This meeting will be the first in a series of meetings to provide general information on wall types, heights and where these wall types may be proposed along the corridor.
The meeting will be held Tuesday, May 22, 6:00-8:00pm, at the Holiday Inn Hotel Somerville, 30 Washington Street.
If you need access or language accommodations to fully participate in this public meeting, please contact Karen Arpino-Shaffer at 617-426-9570 or firstname.lastname@example.org at least one week before the event.
More information about the project is available on the Green Line Extension website at: www.mass.gov/greenlineextension.
As always, if you have any questions on the Green Line Extension Project, you can email us at email@example.com.
