Fitchburg Line Gets $75 Million in Federal Funding for Enhancements
According to an article from today's Worcester Telegram & Gazette, the $75 million in federal funds will be matched by $75 million in state funding. The enhancements to the Fitchburg line are expected to bring additional trains and faster service that will accommodate 700 new riders by the time the project is finished in 2012. This project was one of only 13 approved by the US Department of Transportation.
