Stand Up for Green Line Extension Wednesday March 16

GLX bannerThe 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.
