Former Transportation Secretary wrote this nice article about an event I attended this past week with Governor Patrick, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, Secretary Davey, and others to announce the redevelopment of the Beacon Park Yard in Boston, which includes construction of a new West Station.
The historic acquisition of track ownership from CSX across the state was about expanding commuter rail service between Worcester and Boston as well as unlocking development and transportation opportunities for the entire state.
I want to thank Governor Patrick for allowing me to lead the state team in our negotiations with CSX and thank all of the partners who assisted in the success of this complex deal. As a result we will create thousands of new jobs, a better transportation system, a healthier environment and improved quality of life for Massachusetts residents.
