The MBTA on Wednesday, October 5, will present design details, project benefits, bid date/process, construction phasing and construction schedule of its Blue Hill Avenue Station project. A public meeting has been scheduled as follows:

Wednesday, October 5, 6:00 PM, Mattapan Branch Library, 1350 Blue Hill Avenue

MBTA Blue Hill Station MapThe Blue Hill Avenue Station project consists of constructing a new Commuter Rail Station along the Fairmont Line in the Mattapan neighborhood of Boston, in an area between Blue Hill Avenue (Rte. 28) and Cummins Highway, approximately 6½ miles from South Station.  The Station will be situated in a primarily residential neighborhood and would be located approximately one-quarter mile from Mattapan Square.

The proposed station will be below street grade, and include accessible connections to both Cummins Highway and Blue Hill Avenue.  The design would meet MBTA Commuter Rail Design Standards, as well as those of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Massachusetts Architectural Access Board (MAAB). The $18.5 million project will take 24 months to complete and is part of the MBTA’s effort to serve riders in what is currently considered an underserved part of the city.
