Neal Applauds Appointment of West-East Rail Project Director

Congressman Richard E. Neal released the following statement after Massachusetts Governor Maura Healey, Lieutenant Governor Kim Driscoll, and Massachusetts Department of Transportation Secretary Monica Tibbits-Nutt announced the appointment of Andy Koziol to serve as Director of the West-East Rail Project.


“Since day one of her administration, Governor Healey has voiced her commitment to the West-East Rail Project. This announcement is a testament to that commitment, and I applaud Governor Healey for taking decisive action that brings us one step closer to making West-East Rail a reality. With the $108 million CRISI grant that I announced with Governor Healey at Springfield Union Station in September, the Commonwealth is well positioned to capitalize on an opportunity that will not avail itself again. Fortunately for Massachusetts, we have a Governor who is meeting the moment by taking significant steps to help bring this project to fruition. I look forward to working with Director Koziol, whose expertise will undoubtedly play a critical role in supporting our continued efforts.”
