The proposed $12 million Newmarket Station will be located just north of the Massachusetts Avenue Bridge and adjacent to the South Bay Shopping Center. The station will be located in the Newmarket Back Streets district, the largest industrial area within the City of Boston and home to over 1,000 businesses, 16,000 jobs, and $4 billion in annual revenues. The Newmarket Station is therefore being considered a destination station. Construction is expected to begin later this year. Learn more about the project.
Launched in 2005, the Fairmount Commuter Rail Rehabilitation Project continues to transform the nine-mile long corridor, which is the only commuter rail line located exclusively in the City of Boston and extending from South Station through Dorchester and Hyde Park.
With an investment of $37 million in state funds, Phase I of the project is complete including the rehabilitation of Upham's Corner and Morton stations; the reconstruction of three bridges; the implementation of new interlocking; and the de-leading and painting of neighborhood bridges. Phase II includes the design and construction of four new stations at Talbot Avenue, Blue Hill Avenue, Newmarket, and Four Corners/Geneva.
