$5 million project will create walkable connection between downtown New Bedford, train station


Mayor Jon Mitchell recently announced that New Bedford has been awarded $5 million dollars for a project that will create a more walkable connection between downtown and the new passenger rail station.

The mayor noted, “Public infrastructure investments like these lead to more private investment” while thanking Massachusetts Governor Maura Healy and Lt. Governor, Kim Driscoll.

Making a connection between the passenger train station and downtown, New Bedford will be critical to help local restaurants and businesses feel the positive impact of the south coast rail.
