I was very concerned to learn last night that MassDOT plans to cancel its final public meeting on the Green Line Extension design review, which was originally planned for the evening of May 5th. Given the importance of this project to the Somerville, Cambridge, and Medford communities, I oppose this decision, which will eliminate a key opportunity for the public to be involved in the GLX design review process. Below is a letter that members of the GLX delegation sent to Secretary Pollack this afternoon.20160428_GLX_Public_Meeting_Letter
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) and the MBTA Fiscal Management Control Board are holding a joint meeting next Wednesday, March 16th at 11:30am at the State Transportation Building on Stuart Street in Boston.
This meeting gives Somerville and Cambridge residents another opportunity to show Governor Baker and MassDOT how important the Green Line Extension is to our communities. I’m hoping for a strong showing of public support, and encourage attendees to bring signs and/or to speak during the public comment section of the meeting.
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) will hold a public informational meeting in Cambridge on Wednesday, January 20 to give an update on ongoing construction and to discuss Stage 3 of construction, which is scheduled to begin on February 1. The meeting will take place at the Multicultural Arts Center on 41 Second Street from 6-8pm. Staff from MassDOT and the design/build contractor, White-Skanska-Consigli JV, will be available to answer questions from the public after the presentation.
If you can’t make the informational meeting in Cambridge, MassDOT will hold a similar presentation in Boston on Thursday, January 21 from 6-8pm in the Auditorium at the Shriners Hospitals for Children on 51 Blossom Street.
