Project Update

The South Station Expansion (SSX) project Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) and Draft Section 4(f) Determination has been released. Thank you to everyone who submitted comments. Submitted comments can be viewed here. FRA is currently reviewing comments and finalizing the document.

About The Project

The purpose of the South Station Expansion project is to expand South Station terminal capacity to meet current and anticipated future commuter rail and intercity rail service needs. The project would also promote city-building in a key area of Boston, and allow Dorchester Avenue to be reopened for public use and enjoyment for the first time in decades. The expansion of South Station would enable growth in passenger rail transportation within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and along the Northeast Corridor (NEC). Expanding the terminal would improve the passenger experience of using South Station and updating the infrastructure (track and signals) and related layover capacity would improve service reliability.

MassDOT is simultaneously performing environmental review of the I-90 Allston Interchange Project, which includes the Beacon Park Yard rail site and I-90 (the Massachusetts Turnpike) for midday layover storage.

MassDOT is committed to comprehensive and inclusive civic engagement as part of the South Station Expansion project. Please explore the website for additional information, and feel free to contact Steve Woelfel, Deputy Director, MassDOT Office of Transportation Planning.
