Green Line Extension Friends –

The Green Line Extension website has been updated to include some new materials. A comment letter from MassDOT to the U.S. Department of Transportation regarding the Federal Transit Administration's Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on the New Starts/Small Starts programs is now available. Materials for this week's Design Working Group meeting are also available on the Current Materials page under the subheading "Green Line Extension Design Working Group."

Please note that, as field work continues along the future Green Line Extension right-of-way, passing trains are required to blow their whistles whenever they are within the areas of the field work. While we recognize that this as an inconvenience for nearby residents, trains are required to blow their whistles as a vital safety measure along the right-of-way. We estimate that the work will continue to move north through October, and we will provide weekly updates until it is finished. We apologize for any disruption this may cause.

More information about the Green Line Extension project, including information about upcoming public meetings, can be found at www.mass.gov/greenlineextension. Should you have any questions, please contact Kate Fichter, Project Manager for the Green Line Extension, at katherine.fichter@state.ma.us. Kate is also blogging about the project at the MassDOT blog.

Thank you for your interest and participation.

An update on the field work scheduled for the next two weeks is after the break.
