The MBTA will present an overview of construction elements that will be beginning this fall. Project elements to be discussed include early utility work at the Broadway Bridge in Somerville/Medford and the Medford Street and School Street Bridges in Somerville; site work, retaining walls, drainage and utilities for the Union Square Branch along the Fitchburg commuter rail line in Somerville; and site work, viaduct foundations, drainage and utilities along the Medford Branch between Lechmere Station in Cambridge and Washington Street in Somerville.

The GLX Project received more than 70 submissions to the second phase of the GLX Integrated Art Program Request for Qualifications, announced in July. At this meeting, public input will be sought on the submissions under review and may be considered by the MBTA when making the final selection of the artist or artists who will be retained to contribute to the final design of the GLX Stations at Gilman Square and Lowell Street in Somerville, and Ball Square and College Avenue in Medford. Artists previously were selected for work on the final design of the Lechmere, Union Square and Washington Street Stations. More information on the GLX Integrated Art Program can be found on the GLX website.
