MassDOT and the MBTA are pleased to report that the MBTA Board of Directors this week approved funding for the next phase of design for the Green Line Extension project. For this next phase, the MBTA has retained the services and expertise of a joint venture led by HDR Engineering, Inc. and Gilbane Building Company. Both firms have offices in Boston and have worked extensively on MBTA and MassDOT projects. We look forward to the experience and skills they will bring to the Green Line Extension project, and will soon be organizing events in the Green Line Extension municipalities to introduce the new team members to the communities.
The MBTA has also released a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for Owner's Representative Services to support the MBTA with implementation of the Green Line Extension project. In the RFQ, the MBTA requests that the Owner's Representative team possess expertise in key disciplines anticipated for the project, including the development of monthly and annual project reports, peer review of materials, value engineering, and cost recovery analysis, if applicable. Learn more about the RFQ .
We would also like to remind you that MassDOT and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) will begin a community planning process this month to gather input on the benefits and impacts of potentially extending the Green Line to Mystic Valley Parkway/Route 16. The first in a series of public meetings is scheduled for Wednesday, February 16, 2011 from 6PM to 8PM at the Brooks Elementary School, 288 High Street in Medford. Please view and download a copy of the meeting flyer. If you would like to RSVP for the meeting, the flyer provides information about how to do so.
As always, if you have any questions on the project, you can send an email to email@example.com.
