Green Line Extension Phase 1 Meeting on March 5
The March 5 meeting is for abutters of the Harvard Street Bridge in Medford. Another meeting about Phase 1 of the Green Line Extension will take place in coming weeks.
The Green Line Extension team is holding a meeting, on March 5, about construction of the Harvard Street Bridge, according to an email from the team.
The Harvard Street Bridge is in Medford, just over the border from Somerville near Saint Clement Church.
The March 5 meeting, held at the Saint Clement School cafeteria, is for abutters of construction.
However, the email says there will be a broader meeting about Phase 1 of the Green Line Extension sometime in coming weeks.
Phase 1 consists of reconstructing two bridges and tearing down a building. It represents about 1.5 percent of the entire cost of the Green Line Extension.
The other bridge that will be reconstructed during Phase 1 is the Medford Street Bridge in Somerville. Phase 1 would also tear down a building at 21 Water St. in Cambridge to make way for the new Lechmere Station.
Phase 2/2A of the Green Line Extension, which would bring trains to a new Union Square station and to Washington Street in Somerville, is slated to be complete at the end of 2017.
