Rhode Island Department of Transportation, Pawtucket/Central Falls Commuter Rail Station and Bus Hub

Rhode Island Department of Transportation, Pawtucket/Central Falls Commuter Rail Station and Bus Hub

Project Overview

RIDOT is creating a new station along MBTA’s Providence Line. This new station in Pawtucket, RI, will be along the Amtrak Main line of the Northeast Corridor and will have inbound and outbound platforms, a pedestrian walkway, and vertical circulation. The Pawtucket/Central Falls Commuter Rail Station and Bus Hub is the culmination of more than a decade of work from a collaboration of state and local officials, transit, bus transit, and railroad stakeholders. It will fulfill a need for commuters traveling to Boston in the north and to Providence, T.F. Green and Wickford Stations in the south. The station will also provide a seamless intermodal connection between MBTA commuter rail service and RIPTA local bus service. A major benefit of this Project will be the transit-oriented development in this area of Pawtucket/Central Falls. The commuter rail station will strengthen the existing efforts to spur development in this area of Pawtucket and Central Falls, RI. The Project will open up new direct access to two-million square-feet of potential development at the historic mill complex that the two cities are working together to rehabilitate.
