B&P Tunnel Project Update

At October’s MRIA meeting, Councilman Costello shared the recent decision that the option for the B&P Tunnel Project to tunnel under Bolton Hill has been eliminated. The current tunnel under Bolton Hill is antiquated and can’t handle the volume of Northeast corridor trains and so will have to be overhauled. Since it’s a major project, many more years of study and contingencies lie ahead before it gets underway.
