South Station OverviewThe South Station Expansion Project environmental impact review is moving forward in 2015.

The Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs on December 31 issued a Certificate on the project following last fall’s Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) process.  The Certificate is now available online for review. MassDOT thanks those who provided comments on the DEIR during the comment period ending last month.

The required Certificate defines the analysis necessary to complete the next step: a Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) on the project. The FEIR will include any changes to the project since the DEIR filing, select a preferred South Station design alternative, and incorporate additional environmental analysis as outlined in the Certificate. The FEIR will also include responses to comments.

We invite you to learn more about the project by visiting South Station Expansion website and signing up for project updates.
