MassDOT will actively seek public input through a variety of ways to inform the design process:

  • public meetings
  • Working Group meetings
  • key stakeholder and community briefings
  • information booths at City events
  • the online comment form
  • regular email updates

MassDOT will keep the public informed and seek feedback.
