Anyone have any info/links regarding the exact location of the new carhouse and how it will connect to the mainline? I haven't found anything on this (admittedly I'm not the best at combing through some of this) and I have a hard time picturing where it will be and how it will connect. Will it connect to the line before the split to Union Square or after?

The old GLX site had all of the proposed maintenance facility locations including the one that was settled upon, but I can't find it at the moment. So I drew an extremely rough map. "Seacost Distillers" has already relocated.

TODAY (MON OCT 22) is the deadline to support GLX Phase 2 (U-Haul, Boston Ave @ Mystic Valley Parkway)
Please submit a comment that keeps GLX Phase 2 in the 5-year-plan "Doing" bucket--
rather than the "Planning" or "Dreaming" (where it has been relegated in the draft)

They’ve done a bunch of grading and leveling of the Union Square site, and much of the ROW.
