South Station Expansion

Reminder: Comment Deadline on the South Station Expansion Environmental Impact is December 24, 2014.

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (massDot) will be holding a hearing regarding the preliminary environmental benefits and impacts of the South Station Expansion project on:

Tuesday, November 18, 2014
6pm (Open House at 5:30pm)
Boston Children’s Museum
Dewey Conference Room, 5th floor

The Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) summarizes the project’s environmental benefits and impacts. MassDOT, the MBTA, the Federal Railroad Administration, and Amtrak have identified the expansion of rail capacity at South Station as a critical regional and national transportation need. The purpose of the South Station Expansion project is to expand the station’s terminal and related layover capacity to meet current and future high-speed, intercity, and commuter rail service needs. The latest project fact sheet summarizes the main conclusions of the DEIR. 

Read the DEIR prior to the meeting.
