Governor Deval Patrick wants to bring South Station back to its former glory with an $850 million expansion project. The expansion has become a prominent part of his multi-billion dollar transportation plan.
The project would include demolishing the United States Postal Service sorting facility adjacent to South Station. This would free up space to add 7 more tracks to the 13 that are currently serving the station.
Having a total of 20 tracks serving the station would allow for faster and more reliable rail travel.
