The next meeting of the Green Line Extension Design Working Group will take place:

Thursday, May 26th, 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm, 51 Winthrop Street, Medford

The building can be reached via MBTA bus routes 80, 94, and 96. Parking is available on Boston Avenue along Capen Street Extension, in the Dowling Parking Garage and surface lots near Miller Hall and Hill Hall (Tufts University buildings). Accessible parking is available next to the building. For language or access accommodations, please contact Beverley Johnson at 617-296-7003 or bevco1@gmail.com at least one week before the event.

The public is welcome to attend the meeting. Public seating will be available on a first-come/first-served basis and public comments will be accepted for a limited time at the end of each meeting.

In addition, please note that we have just completed a new, in-depth analysis of the viability of incorporating a light rail vehicle support facility into the current site of the Boston Engine Terminal. The analysis, which was prepared by MassDOT and the MBTA, will shortly be available on the project website.

More information about the project can be found on the Green Line Extension website: www.mass.gov/greenlineextension.

As always, if you have any questions on the project, you can email katherine.fichter@state.ma.us.
