Prospects and Challenges of the Proposed Intermodal Train Station at T.F. Green Airport in Rhode Island

This paper focuses on the proposed intermodal train station at T.F. Green Airport in Rhode Island. Specifically, the paper has three objectives. First, it reviews the current conditions and status of the proposed intermodal train station. Second, drawing from the findings of the current conditions, the paper presents a list of primary benefits and challenges that have faced the development of the station. Third, the paper reviews the actions that have been taken and recommended to remove the barriers that have faced the project. The study concludes that although the proposed intermodal train station is a challenging and complex project, its successful development is within reach and the State of Rhode Island and the City of Warwick stand to benefit from it greatly. Benefits in the areas of economic development, improved environmental quality, and greater transportation alternatives clearly outweigh the possible drawbacks of the project.
