This is a reminder that a Public Hearing will be held on Thursday, October 20, to provide the public with an opportunity for comments on the Environmental Assessment (EA) and Section 4(f) Evaluation for the Green Line Extension Project.

At the Hearing, participants may either submit written comments or provide spoken testimony. In addition to seeking public comment on the Green Line Extension EA, MassDOT will also be taking comments on suggested interim offset mitigation measures needed to compensate for any delay in the implementation of the Green Line Extension Project. Project staff will be available at an Open House prior to and during the Hearing to answer questions.  The hearing information is as follows:

Thursday, October 20
Open House: 6:00pm
Presentation and Public Comment Period: 6:30pm
81 Highland Avenue, Somerville

The Environmental Assessment is available online at www.mass.gov/greenlineextension and at public libraries and City Clerks' offices in Cambridge, Medford, and Somerville. It is also available by request to Regan Checchio at 617-357-5772 or rchecchio@reginavilla.com.

Members of the public who need an accommodation in order to fully participate in the Public Hearing should contact Robert Horacek of MassDOT at 617-973-7171 (TTY: 617-973-7306) or MassDOT.CivilRights@dot.state.ma.us.
