Posted by Kate Fichter, Green Line Extension Project Manager
Thank you to everyone who participated in last week’s meeting of the Design Working Group (DWG). The meeting was a good opportunity for the Project Team to provide the DWG members and assembled audience with an update on the progress that we have made on the station and track designs since our last public meetings in June. A copy of the meeting presentation and meeting minutes will be available shortly on our Working Group website.
As we mentioned at the DWG meeting, we anticipate scheduling a series public events throughout the autumn to present the evolving project designs and seek additional public input. We hope to begin those meetings in September, with a workshop on the Somerville Community Path and a meeting on the Green Line Extension vehicle maintenance facility.
As promised, we have also posted to the Green Line Extension website the latest project schedule. Three documents are available here: an explanatory memo, a condensed "critical path" schedule, and a detailed schedule. We look forward to hearing your feedback.
We also thought that you might be interested to know about the first public informational meeting of the Grounding McGrath Study, which will be held on Tuesday, September 20 at 6PM at Somerville High School (Auditorium), 81 Highland Avenue, Somerville.
The purpose of the meeting is to review the goals and objectives of the study, present a summary of the existing conditions analysis, review the upcoming scheduled repair and maintenance work for the McCarthy Overpass, and solicit input from the public. The meeting will conclude with a question and answer session with the Grounding McGrath Project Team. Project Team members will also be available before the meeting to answer questions. If you need access or language accommodations for the Grounding McGrath meeting, please contact Regan Checchio, firstname.lastname@example.org, or 617-357-5772 x14.
As always, if you have any questions on the Green Line Extension project, you can email Kate Fichter at email@example.com.
