South Station Expansion
MassDOT is leading an effort to improve and expand Boston South Station, and we want to invite your participation and hear your ideas. We are planning opportunities for you to meet us and provide input, beginning with two project open houses to be held just a short walk from South Station. The information to be provided by MassDOT at the two open houses will be the same.

The open houses will be held:

Monday, November 19, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm, Atlantic Wharf, 290 Congress Street- Fort Point Room 2nd Floor

Tuesday, November 20, from 8:00am to 9:15am, Atlantic Wharf, 290 Congress Street- Fort Point Room, 2nd Floor

You are welcome to stop by at any time during either or both of the open houses to see an overview presentation about the project, view maps of the area, meet our team of engineers and planners, and share any ideas you have about this important project. No RSVP is necessary.

If you are unable to attend the open houses, but want to learn more about the project, receive project updates and hear about other opportunities to participate, please visit the South Station Expansion project website  and sign up for the mailing list using the notification form.

South Station is one of Boston’s most significant architectural structures. It is also a vibrant transportation facility that provides rail, bus, and subway service to tens of thousands of people. Over the next three years, MassDOT will develop the plan and preliminary designs needed to expand and enhance the station. This process will include an analysis of traffic, track, signal, and rail operations, environmental review, planning, and design. There is no construction work included in this phase of the project. The potential for future economic development at and around South Station may also be analyzed. Urban design and streetscape improvements will be included in the project.
