SIP projects (including Green Line) appear in Federal Register

  • Post category:Green Line

Today’s Federal Register EPA section contains the proposed new SIP transit projects, including the agreed-upon 2014 deadline for two Green Line extension spurs: one to Medford and one to Union Square. The Federal EPA must approve the revised SIP for everything to move forward.

From the text…
The EPA is proposing to approve a State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision submitted by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This revision changes completion dates of delayed transit projects, provides interim deadlines for projects, maintains interim emission reduction offsets for delays in projects, modifies the project substitution process, revises the list of required transit projects, and expands public participation and oversight of the transit transportation control measure projects. The intended effect of this action is to propose approval of specific named substitution projects to the State Implementation Plan’s transportation control measure projects, and approve modifications to the delay and substitution procedures for transit projects. This action is being taken under the Clean Air Act.
