South Coast Rail Early Action construction projects are under way to prepare for Phase 1 main line rail construction. The first visible active construction project is drainage culvert replacement along the right-of-way.

The work includes drainage culvert repair and replacement, a railroad grade crossing upgrade and constructing wetlands as mitigation along the right-of-way.

From Middleborough to New Bedford and Fall River, MassDOT's contractor will replace a total of 46 culverts with new precast structures, clean an additional 16 existing culverts and remove one out-of-service culvert. Existing granite culverts are being replaced with new precast concrete structures.

This project also includes constructing six wetlands impact mitigation areas adjacent to the railroad right-of-way.

The culverts, grade crossing and wetland mitigation work is currently scheduled for completion in early 2020.
