South Station ExpansionMassDOT’s South Station Expansion Project team will submit a Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) for the project early this summer.  As part of the process, two community meetings are scheduled in neighborhoods near proposed midday layover facilities as follows:

Tuesday, June 7, 6pm, Boston Police District E-18, 1249 Hyde Park Avenue, Hyde Park

Wednesday, June 8, 6pm, Courtyard by Marriott-South Boston, 63 R Boston Street, South Boston

The FEIR will include a preferred South Station Expansion alternative, summarize any changes to the project since the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) filing, and incorporate the additional environmental analysis outlined in the Certificate on the DEIR. The FEIR will also respond to comments made on the DEIR.

The FEIR consists of four primary components:

  • Expanding South Station to accommodate additional platforms, tracks, a new expanded headhouse, and passenger amenities
  • Acquiring and demolishing the United States Postal Service (USPS) facility
  • Constructing rail layover facilities at Widett Circle and Readville – Yard 2
  • Reopening Dorchester Avenue and extending the Harborwalk

MassDOT is developing the FEIR filing schedule, public meeting date and additional materials. We will share the schedule for filing the FEIR with the Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs as soon as details are available. There will be a public meeting on the FEIR during the comment period.

Please visit the project website for meeting flyers and project materials and more information about the project.
