Phase 1 Green Line Extension Meeting on March 14
The public will meet members of the construction team.
The Green Line Extension Team has planned a meeting on March 14 to inform the public about work planned for Phase 1 of the rail project.
Phase 1 of the Green Line Extension, which will begin in March, according to an email from the Green Line Extension Team, consists of reconstructing the Medford Street Bridge in Somerville and the Harvard Street Bridge in Medford.
It also consists of demolishing an MBTA building at 21 Water St. in Cambridge to help clear the site of the new Lechmere Station.
At the March 14 meeting, the public will also meet representatives from Barletta Heavy Division, Inc., the construction company working on Phase 1.
The meeting will take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Holiday Inn in Somerville, 30 Washington St.

Phase 1 of the Green Line Extension represents less than 1.5 percent of the entire cost of the now $1.3 billion project.
The approximately $340 million Phase 2/2A of the Green Line Extension, which would bring trains to Somerville's Union Square and Washington Street, is slated to be complete at the end of 2017, although funding for the project is not yet set in stone.
