Less than one year after Governor Deval Patrick visited Beverly with a pledge to build an MBTA commuter parking garage at Beverly Depot, the project will become a reality. The state is moving forward with plans for a development that includes a 500-space parking garage plus housing and retail, all one block from the Beverly Depot.

The Beverly Depot is one of MBTA's busiest commuter rail stops.
