Green Line Extension Friends –
MassDOT last week submitted an annual report to the Department of Environmental Protection on the status of the mass transit projects required under the State Implementation Plan, including the Green Line Extension. While completion of the Green Line Extension is now tracking slightly behind schedule, MassDOT and the MBTA remain deeply committed to the project for the many benefits it offers, particularly environmental, transportation, and economic development benefits. MassDOT will continue to work with the Department of Environmental Protection and the public to develop appropriate air quality mitigation for the period of delay.
We are pleased to announce that the most recent Green Line Extension Project Fact sheet for June 2010 has been posted to the project website. It is available for download here.
The project website has also been updated to include a memo from the Central Transportation Planning Staff. This memo contains information about the methodology and data sources that were used to show the geographic boundaries of the Medford Hillside area, as discussed in Appendix C of the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR).
The comment period for the FEIR is still open. The document is available on the project website. You can view a copy here. The FEIR is also available at area libraries, City Clerks’ Offices, and by request to Regan Checchio at 617-357-5772 and firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
More information about the Green Line Extension project, including information about upcoming public meetings, can be found at www.mass.gov/greenlineextension.
