DCR Neponset to Blue Hills Feasibility Study
Open House Session

At this open house session, the DCR team for the Neponset to Blue Hills Feasibility Study project will provide opportunities for feedback on the proposed feasibility study. The purpose of this meeting is to continue gathering input from the community after the initial public listening sessions hosted virtually, and to provide information on the preliminary conclusions about preferred options for multimodal connections in this area. Please visit the prior event pages for this project to access the presentations and recordings: November 14th meeting & September 20th meeting.

The public is welcome to come at their own convenience during the allotted open house session time. Informational material will be provided and the project team will be present to answer questions and address concerns. After the open house session, additional comments can be provided by emailing Daniel.cushing@mass.gov.

If you have agency-related questions or concerns or would like to be added to an email list to receive DCR general or project-specific announcements, please email Mass.Parks@mass.gov or call 617-626-4973.
