MBTA just awarded a contract to build the South Coast Phase 1 project that will extend service to Fall River, MA.


This following Mass Transit article has more information. I believe the "12 miles of Secondary track" is the distance from the station on the north side of Fall River north/northeast through Freetown, Myricks and north to the somewhere near the rail junction soith of Taunton.

That doesn't sound like a lot of money for the scope of work listed. I wonder if this is just "first of many."
