South Station Expansion

Posted by Kate Fichter, South Station Expansion Project Manager

Many thanks to everyone who reviewed and commented upon the Environmental Notification Form (ENF) for the South Station Expansion project. The Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs received 32 comment letters on the ENF, and we are grateful for all of the ideas and input.

Energy & Environmental Affairs Secretary Richard K. Sullivan, Jr., issued a Certificate on the ENF on April 19. You can now read the Certificate on the project website.

The Certificate outlines the elements and goals of the project; the history of previous filings related to South Station; and the scope of work for the Draft Environmental Impact Report that MassDOT will prepare over the next year. Some of the topics for the Draft Environmental Impact Report include land impacts; wetlands, waterways, and tidelands; stormwater; water supply and wastewater; traffic and transportation; air quality and greenhouse gas emissions; historic resources; mitigation; and more.

You can continue to follow the progress of the South Station Expansion project by requesting a project update for your group or agency, checking the project website, and printing the fact sheet.
