Green Line Extension

Project background

green line at Park street station

MAPC worked with the cities of Medford and Somerville to gather community input on the possibility of extending the Green Line to Mystic Valley Parkway/Route 16, and to study potential land uses and transit-oriented developments in the area.

The planning study is funded by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT), which will be actively involved in the process, along with the MBTA.

MAPC’s role

MAPC lead a community visioning process to examine how a future Mystic Valley Parkway station could foster transit-oriented development in the area, while minimizing negative impacts to the local community.

Community Visioning Process Meetings

MAPC hosted a series of public input meetings in conjunction with the Massachusetts Office of Public Collaboration and MassDOT. We hope to help facilitate strong public engagement throughout the Mystic Valley Parkway visioning process.
