Green Line Extension

Posted by Kate Fichter, Green Line Extension Project Manager

We're pleased to announce that the Spring 2010 Green Line Extension project Fact Sheet is now available. It can be downloaded from the project website here.

We also want to thank everyone who attended last Wednesday's land use planning workshop in Medford. Your contributions made the evening a great success.

The next workshop will be held this evening, Wednesday, May 26, from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at the Kennedy-Longfellow School Cafeteria, 158 Spring Street in Cambridge. This meeting will focus on public ideas and suggestions for the area around the future Lechmere station. We will be happy to take comments on other station areas as well.

More information on the workshop can be found on the Green Line Extension website
