Grand Junction Line Aerial MassDOT invites all interested stakeholders to a community meeting to discuss progress on the Grand Junction Commuter Rail Feasibility Study.  The meeting will be held as follows:

Thursday, June 16, 6:30pm-8:00pm
Morse School – Auditorium
40 Granite Street, Cambridge

The purpose of this meeting is to discuss an ongoing study of the potential use of the Grand Junction Railroad for supplemental MBTA Commuter Rail service to Cambridge and North Station.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts recently purchased Grand Junction Railroad from CSX Transportation in order to preserve this valuable corridor for transportation use. MassDOT is evaluating the feasibility, benefits, and impacts of running a branch of the Framingham/Worcester Commuter Rail line from Allston, through Cambridge and Somerville, to North Station in Boston.

MassDOT staff members will discuss existing and future conditions along the corridor, other proposed uses of the corridor, proposed alternatives to be evaluated, and environmental review. MassDOT will hold a community meeting in fall 2011 to present the results of the evaluated alternatives.

For more information, or to request alternative language or other special accommodation, please contact Matthew Ciborowski at matthew.ciborowski@state.ma.us, (617) 973-7180.
