Work is now well underway toward construction of a new regional transit center in Greenfield- the Commonwealth’s first “shovel ready” federal stimulus project to move forward this spring as part of Governor Patrick's Massachusetts Recovery Plan.
The photo at left shows demolition this week of a building on the site by Stamford Wrecking. The building is now fully demolished and the work on schedule.
The $12.8 million innovative Franklin Regional Transit Center project will be located within the Greenfield Bank Row Urban Renewal Zone and provide a transportation hub for Franklin County supporting public and private transit services. The transit center is designed to encourage future passenger rail service and boost investment in downtown Greenfield.
