Green Line Extension Field Work in Magoun Square Neighborhood

Over the next six months, contractors for the Massachusetts Department of Transportation will perform field work in support of the MBTA Green Line extension to Somerville and Medford. Teams will perform field surveys, noise and vibration testing, and soil borings to collect information for the extension design. People who live and work along the right-of-way may see these professional surveyors and others, who are authorized to work within and around the MBTA right-of-way.

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation recently sent letters about the work to abutters to the rail right-of-way. The abutters list was obtained from the most recent records of the city of Somerville.

Should you have questions about the work being performed on the rail right-of-way, please contact Kate Fichter, Green Line Extension Project Manager, 617-973-7342 or email Kate at
