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.
