Thursday, April 13, 2017, 6:30 PM, University of Massachusetts School of Law, Francis J. Larkin Moot Courtroom, 333 Faunce Corner Road, Dartmouth

MassDOT filed an SCR Notice of Project Change (NPC) on March 15, 2017, to adopt a phased approach to provide early service, years before revenue service is currently considered to be possible. Phase 1 will provide service from New Bedford, Fall River and Taunton to Boston by building the Southern Triangle, and using the Middleborough Secondary line and the existing Middleborough/Lakeville Commuter Rail line. For Phase 2, MassDOT will continue to advance the full Stoughton Electric Alternative design.

Please read more about the project, download the NPC and the public meeting flyer, and learn how to comment on the project website.

The NPC can also be found:

Written comments must be submitted by April 21, 2017 to the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) Office. Please contact the project team with any questions at SouthCoastRail@dot.state.ma.us.
