End of the line for South Coast Rail: MBTA to talk project's final stages at meeting

FALL RIVER — It's nearly boarding time. 


The South Coast Rail team has invited the public to a community meeting to discuss the project, which is wrapping up construction. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 10, at 6 p.m. at Morton Middle School. 


Representatives from the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority will be on hand to deliver information about Fall River’s new commuter rail line to Boston.


What will the MBTA be talking about? 

  • Construction: The entire South Coast Rail project should be substantially complete by the end of this month, so the MBTA will be marking that milestone. 
  • Testing: The project is now in the midst of a monthslong testing phase where the MBTA simulates service. 
  • Safety: The MBTA has been heavily promoting the need for caution along the rights of way and discouraging illegal dumping.
