What are your feelings about the South Coast Rail project?

Posted:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has sent a letter stating that it has “serious concerns” about at least one of the proposed routes that the South Coast Rail project might take on its way to Fall River and New Bedford.

EPA Regional Administrator Curt Spalding wrote to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that the route the corps seemed to prefer in a draft environmental impact statement in March through the Hockomock Swamp would have “a substantial and unacceptable impact on aquatic resources of national importance.”

How important is extending commuter rail service to Bristol County, Mass., and are environmental concerns enough to end the project?
