Construction of Wachusett station, the new terminus of the MBTA Fitchburg Line in Fitchburg, MA. If MBTA doesn't open it by 2016.09.30, it may be penalized by the feds to the tune of US$59,2m.

It pales in comparison to the Green Line extension fiasco.

Wachusett station opens on 2016.09.30.

However, only two round trips per day (weekday only) will serve it in the beginning.

http://www.mbta.com/about_the_mbta/n...9&month=&year=

"Full" service to begin in November.

Construction on Mattapan commuter-rail station will begin in early spring 2017. This will be a brand-new station on the Fairmount Line between the existing Morton Street and Fairmount stations. The new station will be just up the street from the existing Mattapan Trolley station. The new station will likely be called "Blue Hill Avenue."

Pawtucket-Central Falls station

http://www.boston.com/news/local-new...e-mbta-station

Sign to be planted at site of future MBTA station

AP, 10:57 AM (October 29, 2016)

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island officials are planting a new construction sign marking the future site of the Pawtucket Central Falls Commuter Rail Station.

State and city leaders are scheduled to unveil the new sign Monday at a Pawtucket intersection near where the train station is scheduled to open in 2020.

It will be a new stop on the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s commuter line that connects Rhode Island to Boston.

The Rhode Island Department of Transportation was awarded a $13.1 million federal grant to help build the station.

It will become Rhode Island’s first stop for MBTA trains heading to Providence from Attleboro, Massachusetts. The location is a former industrial area of Pawtucket just south of the border with Central Falls.
