MassDOT Files DSEIR For South Coast Rail Project

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) has announced that the South Coast Rail project is proceeding with the filing of the Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (DSEIR) with the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) Office. The DSEIR document analyzes only the new elements proposed as part of Phase 1 that were not previously analyzed in the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS)/Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR).   

Copies of the DSEIR have been distributed to thirty-six libraries in the region with briefings continuing for local leaders, stakeholder groups, and the Interagency Coordinating Group. In addition, a public meeting will be held on the DSEIR at 6:30 p.m., Tuesday, March 6, at the Claire T. Carney Library, Grand Reading Room, at UMass Dartmouth (download a meeting flyer).

On February 7, 2018, Notice of Review for the DSEIR was published in the issue of the Environmental Monitor.

Members of the public are encouraged to provide comments on the DSEIR by sending comments via letter, postcard, or email to the Secretary of Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs or by participating in a public meeting. Learn more on how to comment on the SCR website.
