Springfield's Union Station project gets funding boost from MassDevelopment; grant targets site cleanup
- A grant issued through MassDevelopment's Brownfields Redevelopment Fund [pdf] will help pay for the mitigation of environmental issues at Union Station, the site of a new regional transportation center. Mayor Domenic J. Sarno announced the grant Wednesday. Environmental issues at the site that runs along Frank B. Murray Street include petroleum and underground tanks at the former Hotel Charles location. The former baggage building and the terminal building are home to an asbestos roof, PCBs in window caulking, and asbestos-wrapped pipes.
