The MBTA will host a public meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 27, at James Condon Elementary School regarding a section of South Boston track known as Track 61 that will be used for testing new Red Line cars. At this meeting, MBTA staff and project team members will address earlier community feedback and share information about the project. More information about the project can be found here.

Adjacent to Haul Road, Track 61 meets the requirements necessary for proper testing:


  • No less than 1,800 feet of straight track for test runs.
  • Close proximity to the Red Line's maintenance facility.
  • Ability to move cars from the Red Line's maintenance facility to the test track with no impact on the main line.
  • Additional storage for vehicles in close proximity to the test track.


At a projected cost of $32 million, upgrading of the track will commence in the fall after the MBTA solicits bids and awards a contract for the necessary work.

This meeting is accessible to people with disabilities and those with limited English proficiency. Accessibility accommodations and language services will be provided free of charge, upon request, as available. Such services include documents in alternate formats, translated documents, assistive listening devices, and interpreters (including American Sign Language). For more information or to request reasonable accommodations and/or language services, please contact Trish Foley at 857.368.8907 or
