south-coast-railMassDOT and the MBTA invite you to attend a Public Meeting on the South Coast Rail Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (DSEIR) as follows:

Monday, March 19, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM, Martin Middle School Auditorium, 131 Caswell St, Taunton

On January 31, 2018, MassDOT filed a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (DSEIR) for South Coast Rail (SCR). The document describes MassDOT’s approach to providing SCR service by extending an existing rail line. MassDOT proposes to deliver Phase 1 service to Taunton, Fall River and New Bedford late in 2022, years before revenue service is possible under the Full Build Project. At the same time, MassDOT will proceed with designing, permitting and funding the Stoughton Straight Electric Alternative.

The March 6 public meeting information will also be provided at this event.

Where to Find the DSEIR: The DSEIR can be downloaded from the project website. The document is also available in 36 South Coast public libraries. The full list is available on the project website or electronically by request to Jean Fox, Jean.Fox@state.ma.us.
