MA governor Deval Patrick has released a new state transportation agenda that includes track upgrades that are essential to the Berkshires rail plan. The agenda lists “$113.8 million to upgrade railroad tracks from Pittsfield to the Connecticut line to support future passenger rail service to New York City.” This is a major break-through, and there’s much more ahead. Please continue to share the petition, as every new signature triggers an email to our representatives in MA, CT, and NY.
