Medford residents, watchdog group suing over Green Line extension
Two Medford residents, along with the town’s Green Line Advisory Group, are suing MassDOT and the Federal Transit Administration over the Green Line extension, according to a report by the Medford Transcript.
The$1.33 billion project will extend rail service from Cambridge through College Avenue in Medford, but according to Medford residents Bill Wood, Carolyn Rosen and the advisory group, the extension would allegedly violate the National Environment Policy Act of 1969.
According to the report, Wood said the group does not oppose the Green Line, but that they’ve “asked the state for full disclosure and transparency. This area [of Medford] is not a blighted neighborhood that needs to be changed like they say. The people who live there should have representation.”
