Green Line Extension Friends –

The Green Line Extension website has been updated to include some new materials. On the Current Materials page, you can now find a summary of comments and discussion at the spring Land Use Workshops as well as meeting minutes from last week's Design Working Group meeting. We have also included a link to the Community Corridor Planning's Summary of Results from their three-part community design workshop on the Green Line Extension. The website also has a link to video of the Design Working Group meeting, hosted by the SCATV "Vlog." (Please scroll to the August 11, 2010 entry.)

More information about the Green Line Extension project, including information about upcoming public meetings, can be found at www.mass.gov/greenlineextension. Should you have any questions, please contact Kate Fichter, Project Manager for the Green Line Extension, at katherine.fichter@state.ma.us.

Thank you for your interest and participation.

After the break, please find an update on the field work scheduled for the next two weeks:



Field Survey:

Weeks ending 8/20/10 and 8/27/10:

Property and topographic survey for the proposed Maintenance Facility in the Inner Belt area of Somerville.
Detailed bridge survey of Red Bridge in Somerville
Survey of drainage system inverts* within the Lowell Line Commuter Rail Corridor
*Inverts are elevations of the interior bottom of the existing drain pipes measured at a drainage structure.

Boring Program:

Weeks ending 8/20/10 and 8/27/10:

Borings within the MBTA Lowell Commuter Rail Line from Harvard Street to College Avenue in Medford
Boring typically occurs between 7:00 AM and 3:30 PM on weekdays.

Please note that, as field work continues along the future Green Line Extension right-of-way, passing trains are required to blow their whistles whenever they are within the areas of the field work. While we recognize that this as an inconvenience for nearby residents, trains are required to blow their whistles as a vital safety measure along the right-of-way. We estimate that the work will continue to move north through October, and we will provide weekly updates until it is finished. We apologize for any disruption this may cause.
