The Rhode Island Department of Transportation kicked off construction Monday morning for the Pawtucket Central Falls Commuter Rail Station.
It’s slated to open in 2020, and will serve as a stop on the MBTA commuter rail between Rhode Island and Boston,
State officials say it will also function as a busing hub.
