South Coast RailMassDOT and the MBTA will host a series of public meetings beginning next month on the proposed restoration of passenger rail service between the South Coast and Boston.

Designers are considering a new connection making use of the existing MBTA Stoughton Commuter Rail Line. The design for this route is currently 15 percent complete. In addition, MassDOT and the MBTA are also considering an alternative rail route between Boston and the South Coast that could potentially be designed and constructed more quickly than the Stoughton route. The meetings will be held to inform the public on the status of the project, discuss next steps, and seek public comment.

Public meetings all begin at 6:30 p.m. and are scheduled as follows:

New Bedford- Wednesday, September 7th, Greater New Bedford Vocational High School Auditorium, 1121 Ashley Boulevard

Taunton- Monday, September 12th, Bristol Community College, 2 Galleria Mall Drive

Fall River- Wednesday, September 14th, Bristol Community College, 777 Elsbree Street, Building G, Commonwealth College Center, Faculty Lounge

Easton- Thursday, September 15th, Middle School Auditorium, 98 Columbus Avenue

Canton- Monday, September 19th, High School Auditorium, 900 Washington Street

Middleborough- Thursday, September 22nd, High School Auditorium, 71 East Grove Street

For more information about the project, visit the South Coast Rail website.

Public comments and questions may also be submitted by email to SouthCoastRail@dot.state.ma.us.
