The easiest thing to do is to take Route 128 (accessible from I-95).
From Route 128, you'll look for the sign for Dory Road off the Blackburn Circle Rotary on 128.
From Dory Road continue until you see the sign for Blackburn Dr and take a right onto Blackburn Dr.
You will see the turbine and the parking lot for the Industrial Park off of Blackburn Dr. We will also post signs to direct you!
We will park in the parking lot for the Industrial Park. We have many RSVPS, so we recommend carpooling as much as possible! There will be signs and Mass Energy staff to guide you to park.
The turbine is right next to the parking area.
