Green Line ExtensionMassDOT and the MBTA are hosting two public meetings this spring to provide an update on the design of four stations as part of the Green Line Extension project.  The meetings and stations in discussion are as follows:

Thursday, May 14, 6:00 – 8:00 PM: Ball Square & College Avenue Stations
The meeting will take place at the St. Clement School, 579 Boston Avenue in Medford.

Thursday, May 21, 6:00 – 8:00 PM: Lowell Street & Gilman Square Stations
The meeting will take place at the Center for the Arts at the Armory, 191 Highland Avenue in Somerville.

Last fall updates were given on the first three stations of the project (Lechmere, Washington Street & Union Square) and these upcoming meetings will provide updates for the other four stations to be opened as part of the Green Line Extension project. We invite you to join us and hope you will share this information with your friends and neighbors.

The Green Line Extension project now in construction will extend existing MBTA Green Line service from a relocated Lechmere Station in East Cambridge to Union Square in Somerville and College Avenue in Medford.

If you have questions please email info@glxinfo.com.  More project information can be found on the web: www.mass.gov/greenlineextension.
