An $11 billion state infrastructure bill is heading to Governor Baker’s desk, the potential legislation includes funding for the East-West Rail project. The East-West Rail project has been an idea more than five years in the making. Supports of the project at the State House say this funding opportunity is a move in the right direction. The East-West Rail project would create rail connections between Pittsfield, Springfield, Worcester and Boston. It hopefully will lead to economic growth in western Massachusetts.
