In September 2023, the Bay Crossing Study Tier 2 (BCST2) held a series of Public Open Houses to inform the public on the study Purpose and Need, Alternatives Screening Process, and public engagement activities to date.  The open houses included two in-person public open houses and one virtual open house. In total, over 550 people attended the meetings and over 600 comments were received via the September 2023 written comment card, in-person, online, and by mail/e-mail. Comments from the open houses are summarized in the September 2023 Open Houses Survey Summary.

The MDTA is committed to providing opportunities for inclusive and transparent stakeholder engagement to support an equitable transportation study and outcome. The MDTA invited all interested parties to join us, either virtually or in-person, at an upcoming Tier 2 Study Open House.

Open House attendees were able to:

  • learn about the Tier 2 Study including the proposed Purpose and Need and alternatives development process,
  • discuss the Tier 2 Study with MDTA’s team and ask questions, and
  • Complete the Open House Survey online or print the Open House Survey card and mail it
  • provide comments.

There was no formal presentation; however, the study team was available to answer questions during both the in-person and virtual Open Houses. The same information was provided at each of the Open Houses.
