    Portland Passenger Rail

    The study team recommended further evaluation of alternative 8 which would separate intercity busses and trains. From the study: Alternative 8 provides strong benefits to customer and train movement safety, improves rail operations by being located on the rail mainline thereby eliminating the...

    Portland - General Infrastructure

    Connect 2045, the long range transportation plan for greater Portland, includes priority projects. Inclusion of a project in Connect 2045 is a critical first step in the funding process but does not guarantee a project will be funded. Some of these projects could have a major positive impact on...

    Wayland Sq. | 230 Waterman St. | Providence

    Disappointing that they caved to pressure and scaled back the project but nice to see more new housing in the area. To the PPS’ concerns, I’m a supporter of facadectomies and it would be cool to see the existing structure incorporated into the new but that not happening with this particular...

    195 Providence Innovation & Design District

    I preferred the glass and steel aesthetic on display in post 49 to what is shown in the latest renderings. Even so, the glazed white brick will look good and I’m glad they pushed back on suggestions that the arcade be removed.

    I scanned the Downeaster ticket on my phone when leaving and entering the waiting area last Friday. Definitely not designed for lefties but no issues otherwise. I wonder how this will work when I purchase a ticket for another person and myself. Amtrak only issues one QR code. Will we both be...
