Gov. Patrick to open Yawkey Commuter Rail Station

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (AP) - Gov. Deval Patrick is set to celebrate the opening of the renovated Yawkey Commuter Rail Station, a development that has paved the way to double service along the 44-mile line running from Worcester to Framingham.

Patrick will officially open the station and kick off the enhanced service to Worcester at a ceremony scheduled for Monday morning in Boston.

The governor broke the ground on the renovation in November 2010. It was originally scheduled for completion on the spring of 2012, and cost $13.5 million. There was no immediate information on final costs.

The project is increasing service on the Worcester-to-Framingham Commuter Rail Line from 17 to 40 stops per day.

The station will run entirely on solar power, making it the Commonwealth's only "net-zero energy rail station."
