    N.H. Executive Council approves commuter rail study

    New Hampshire’s Executive Council has approved a study looking at expanding commuter rail service from Boston to Nashua, Manchester, and Concord, N.H. The study approved at Wednesday’s meeting will explore the viability of a commuter rail line along the Merrimack River corridor from the Massachusetts border to Concord. Federal funds would be used to study the project. Governor Maggie Hassan said expanded rail service to Nashua and beyond has the potential to boost New Hampshire’s economy and to create jobs.
