Green Line Extension Groundbreaking, June 25, 2018

The Green Line Extension Project team has scheduled a public meeting as follows:

Wednesday, July 18, 6:30 to 8:00PM, Medford City Hall Council Chambers, 85 George P. Hassett Drive, 2nd Floor, Medford

The purpose of the meeting is to provide general updates on:

  • Traffic detours due to bridge closures beginning this fall
  • The Community Path concept
  • Construction activity and outlook

The GLX Project will extend the Green Line approximately 4.7 miles along two branches from a relocated Lechmere Station in East Cambridge. Approximately one mile of the extension will run parallel to the Fitchburg Commuter Rail Line to Union Square in Somerville and approximately 3.7 miles will run parallel to the Lowell Commuter Rail Line to College Avenue in Medford. Seven new stations will be constructed as part of the project, including the relocated Lechmere Station, along with a new vehicle storage and maintenance facility in Somerville. Once completed, trains will operate every five to six minutes in the peak periods, providing fast and efficient service to downtown Boston.

For more information, please visit the project website. Please send questions or comments to: info@glxinfo.com
