MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) Montpelier, Vt., officials said they began work on a long-awaited transit center.

After nearly two decades of planning, work on the $12.5 million Taylor Street project — funded by federal, state and local money — will take a year to complete. The Times Argus reports the announcement of the start of work came from city manager Bill Fraser at a city council meeting.

The project includes the construction of 30 affordable housing units, in addition to constructing offices, the transit center and a recreation path project.

Fraser said all land transfer deeds needed as part of the recreation path development were signed.
