Northeast Corridor Rail Plan Scoping Meeting

Monday, August 13th - 4:30-7:30p
@ State Transportation Building, 10 Park Plaza, Boston [map]

What will the Northeast Corridor (NEC) rail system look like in future years? How will it function for intercity and local travelers? What will it take for the NEC to provide the service, reliability, and speeds necessary to support regional economic growth now and into the future?

Come to the public meeting to help shape the scope of study for NEC FUTURE, the Federal Railroad Administration's planning and environmental evaluation of alternatives for improving the rail network from Boston to Washington.

The meeting, one of nine taking place in the corridor, will help define the scope of study for the Tier 1 Environmental Impact Statement, which along with a Service Development Plan will comprise a Passenger Rail Corridor Investment Plan for the NEC.

The meeting will be held in an open house format from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.; participants are welcome to arrive at any time during the open house. Informational displays will be available and project staff will be on hand to answer questions, listen to your comments and discuss the project.

A brief presentation by project staff will be given at 5:30 p.m.

Following the presentation, there will be an opportunity to provide formal comments, either publicly or privately to a stenographer. There will also be opportunities for written comments at the meeting, by mail, email, and through this website until September 14, 2012.
