The Silver Line Gateway project will extend Bus Rapid Transit service into Chelsea and East Boston from Boston’s Seaport District. The new service will make stops at Airport Station on the Blue Line and four new stations in Chelsea before terminating at Mystic Mall. A Public Information Meeting on the project has been scheduled as follows:
Monday, August 18, 2014, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, Chelsea City Hall, Council Chambers, 500 Broadway
MassDOT has completed the first phase of the project, which evaluated several potential route options. Silver Line Gateway will now advance to the construction phase, with a planned construction start date of December 2014 or January 2015. Since Silver Line Gateway uses a combination of roadway and railroad right-of-way throughout the new route, the construction will be managed in two parts. In addition to the Silver Line itself, the project scope includes replacing the Washington Avenue Bridge, relocating and rebuilding the Chelsea Commuter Rail Station and creating a shared-use path to connect Eastern Avenue and downtown Chelsea.
We invite you to attend this meeting to learn more information about the construction process and schedule, ask questions or submit comments. Please visit the project website at www.massdot.state.ma.us/silverlinegateway for more information and to sign up for email alerts.
