Back Bay Station Ventilation Project

Meeting Info

Date: May 3, 2017 at 6 PM

Location: Transportation Building • 10 Park Plaza • Boston, MA

Attendees: Public

Event Description

The MBTA’s Back Bay Station project team will present the 60% design for the Back Bay Station Stair 5 & 6 Pressurization, as part of the overall Back Bay Station Ventilation Project which is comprised of: Stair 5 and 6 Pressurization (this public meeting) and Platform Ventilation Upgrades (future public meetings).

This first component of the Back Bay Station Ventilation Project: Pressurization of Stairs 5 & 6 (stairs leading to tracks 1,2, and 3) will provide an aerodynamic separation between the platform and concourse levels, providing immediate relief, by preventing fumes that emanate from the platform level from entering into the concourse level.

If you need a reasonable accommodation (such as American Sign Language Interpreters, assistive listening devices, handouts in alternate formats, etc.) and/or language assistance to fully participate, please submit your request to Trish Foley at or 857-368-8907 at least 7 days prior to the meeting.  Such accommodations will be provided free of charge. The meeting space is accessible to persons with disabilities.
