New Bedford- Wamsutta Railroad Bridge

The proposed South Coast Rail project team invites you to review new Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) now available on the project website.

The FAQs address current project status and issues discussed during recent public meetings. The project team is evaluating the proposal to provide earlier service using the existing Middleborough/Lakeville line, Middleborough Secondary, and building the southern triangle, which would connect to Taunton, Fall River and New Bedford.

The team will be reporting back to MassDOT and MBTA leadership as information becomes available. In the meantime, you can visit the project website to find information and review the September meeting materials. We hope you will encourage friends and family to sign up for project notices and stay in touch with the project.

If you have any questions, please contact the project team by emailing

We invite you to review the FAQs.
