Governor Deval Patrick today joined Congressman John W. Olver in breaking ground on the Commonwealth’s first “shovel ready” stimulus project to move toward construction as part of his Massachusetts Recovery Plan– a regional transit center in Greenfield.
The $12.8 million innovative Franklin Regional Transit Center project will be a transportation hub for Franklin County supporting public and private transit services. The transit center is designed to encourage future passenger rail services along the Connecticut River corridor and will be a “net zero” building designed to drastically minimize energy use.
