Fox to manage rail project




A Freetown selectwoman has been named the new manager of the South Coast Rail Project. Jean Fox replaces former rail project manager Kristina Egan. As manager of the effort to bring commuter rail service to Fall River, New Bedford, and Taunton, Fox will be responsible for securing funding for construction and operation of the lines, shepherding the project through the environmental review and permitting process, and keeping the public fully engaged throughout the design phase. Fox also serves on the Bristol County Commission on the Status of Women, the South Coast Education Compact, and a number of school and education advisory boards in New Bedford. She has worked for the Greater New Bedford Workforce Investment Board since 2007. - Christine Legere
