The Executive Office of Transportation has posted to the Green Line extension project website new, more detailed drawings for the proposed stations, which will be
discussed at Monday’s Project Advisory Group meeting.
Here is a quick summary of the new plans:
+ The station lobby is attached to the north side of the Broadway
Bridge, with access from bridge
+ The platform is further north (behind the bowling alley buiding,
which appears to remain intact)
+ The station lobby just north of College Avenue, designed into the
curvature, with ramps leading to station from both College Avenue
and Boston Avenue.
+ The platform is further north of College Avenue, along Boston
Avenue, but ending before reaching abutting homes on Burget Avenue.
ROUTE 16/MYSTIC VALLEY PARKWAY
+ The UHaul building is gone, but there is no parking deck shown.
+ The station lobby is in the far northeast corner of the property.
+ The platform is south of the lobby, extending to just past the
northeast corner of 200 Boston Avenue.
+ There is a dropoff/pickup lane with an entrance from Boston
Avenue, in between the 200 and 196 Boston Avenue buidings, and
exiting (presumably exit only) at Mystic Valley Parkway.
Here is a link to all the station drawings on the project website:
Monday’s Project Advisory Group meeting will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. at the St. Clement’s Parish Hall, 579 Boston Ave., Medford.
Please note that this is a change of location from the original meeting schedule that was announced in April. Shiloh Bapstist Church in Medford, which was scheduled to host this meeting, requested that it be moved because it anticipated it would not have room to
accommodate as many people as attended the May advisory group meeting at St. Clement’s.
The meeting agenda and directions follow:

St. Clement’s Parish Hall is located at the intersection of Warner Street and Boston Avenue. Warner is the continuation of Harvard Street on the other side of Boston Avenue.
The Advisory Group meeting is on the lower level, which you can enter from the Warner Street main entrance (the sign next to the door says “St. Clement’s Parish Schools”). The room is down a few steps.
The handicapped entrance is located in the walkway space between the church and the school. It can be reached from Warner Street or from the school parking lot. The doorway leads to an elevator, which goes to the lower level (you will arrive in a hall outside of new Parish Hall).
There is one handicapped parking space and there may be some spaces available in the school’s parking lot by the time our meeting begins.
On street parking for non-residents is available on Boston Avenue and on St. Clement’s Road but only on one side of each street, so please read the signs to make sure you are not choosing resident parking.
Here is a google map of the location:
Nearby MBTA bus routes that serve the area (specifically PowderHouse Square) include the 89, 94, and 80.
