PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island officials are planting a new construction sign marking the future site of the Pawtucket Central Falls Commuter Rail Station.

State and city leaders are scheduled to unveil the new sign Monday at a Pawtucket intersection near where the train station is scheduled to open in 2020.

It will be a new stop on the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s commuter line that connects Rhode Island to Boston.

The Rhode Island Department of Transportation was awarded a $13.1 million federal grant to help build the station.

It will become Rhode Island’s first stop for MBTA trains heading to Providence from Attleboro, Massachusetts. The location is a former industrial area of Pawtucket just south of the border with Central Falls.
