Re: Providence developments

With the success of the Hartford Line, it seems the writing is on the wall for RI to develop commuter rail. It'll be a bizarre world for Hartford to succeed on the failings of Providence especially in the age of CT's fiscal dilemma, but here we are.

The proposal to connect Providence to Fall River and New Bedford through the tunnel seems like a smarter long term proposal than SCR.

I have to say, while it looks like Miami meets the Aqua Tower in Chicago, dropped in New England, I really like this idea ... now if only those parking lots nearby could be filled in ...
