Stoughton Gears Up To Challenge Southcoast Rail

The town of Stoughton is putting its money where its mouth is. 

A special Town Meeting last week approved $150,000 to pay for a legal challenge of an Army Corps of Engineers report, naming the Stoughton-route as the best alternative for bringing commuter rail service to the Southcoast. 

Attorney T-J Recupero of Stoughton supported the funding, though he has nothing against extending commuter rail service to New Bedford and Fall River.

Recupero says plans for development in Stoughton for instance, are either vague or non-exsistant. 

Recupero says the state is projecting a double rail line with overhead electric wires coming through the center of Stoughton, a move that could set the business district back fifty years.
