2nd Track 61 Public Meeting Scheduled

updated 8/3/17 with July 27th meeting presentation

The MBTA will host a second Track 61 public meeting on:

Thursday, July 27, 2017
6:30 pm
Condon School
200 D. Street

Track 61 is being considered for a five year testing period of the new red line subway cars. The track runs from Cabot Yard south of the South Boston Bypass Road and travels northeast under each cross street from West Fifth Street until B Street and terminates at the property with frontage on Cypher Street. 

At the first public meeting, neighbors expressed concerns regarding: safety, the environmental condition of Cypher Street (contaminated "hot spots"), air pollution, the return of a heavy industrial use to an area of positive business and residential growth, and adverse effects on Flaherty Park, A Street Park and the developing West Second St. Park.

The first meeting took place June 29th. View June meeting presentation by MBTA. Additional information on Track 61 is available here including a link to the MBTA's notice of intent filed with the City of Boston's Conservation Commission.
