Public Involvement

As part of their commitment to involve the public in this study process, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation and the Vermont Agency of Transportation have developed an Agency and Stakeholder Involvement Plan which includes:

  • A Stakeholder Committee: A Stakeholder Committee made up government officials, transportation agencies, transportation service operators, and regional planning agencies will provide oversight, direction and review of study reports


  • Public Meeting: Eight public meetings will be organized in two formats – (1) in-person open house meetings held in a physical location in the corridor and (2) on-line open house meetings where people can view a presentation and submit comments to the study team. Public meetings will be held at key study milestones and integrated into the outreach process for a federally-mandated Environmental Impact Statement.


  • Newsletters: Newsletters will be distributed in print format at public meetings and will be produced and distributed in electronic format, including posting on this Web site. The newsletters will be released at key milestones summarizing development of the study.


  • Study Website: The study Web site will be used to update the public with ongoing study information and developments and publicize public meetings and opportunities to comment.


  • E-alerts: Periodic e-mail updates on study progress and events will be sent out to interested parties. Sign up for updates.
