The purpose of this supplement is to provide additional information relative to: the Roxbury Substation Alternatives Analysis; an expanded discussion on mitigation of potential adverse impacts; draft Section 61 findings; the Memorandum of Understanding between Amtrak and the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) for Route 128 Station; Amtrak's draft outreach program; and to address other Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act concerns.
