South Station ExpansionMassDOT has reached a major milestone in the South Station Expansion Project, filing an Environmental Notification Form (ENF) with the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) Office.

The MEPA office has scheduled a public session to gather comments on the document:

Monday, April 1, 4:00-6:00 p.m., One South Station, 2nd floor

Signs will direct participants to the meeting on the second floor, which is reached via the Atlantic Avenue entrance. For information about meeting accessibility or language services please contact Kerri Chace, kchace@reginavilla.com or 617-357-5772 x16.

The ENF outlines potential environmental consequences of expanding South Station, as well as preliminary understandings of the transportation and other benefits from the project. Members of the public are encouraged to review the ENF and participate in the meeting or submit comments.

Over the next three years, MassDOT will develop the plan and preliminary designs needed to expand and enhance the station. 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.

To view the ENF, visit the project website: www.massdot.state.ma.us/southstationexpansion

The ENF is also available by request from Kate Fichter, Katherine.fichter@state.ma.us; 857-368-8852.
Copies are available at the State Transportation Library, 10 Park Plaza, 2nd Floor, Boston; and the Massachusetts State Library, State House, Room 341, Boston.
