BOSTON OFFICIALS BEGIN TO INVESTIGATE KRAFT PROPOSAL
Published January 4, 1996
MA Transportation Secretary James Kerasiotes, Massport Chief Stephen Tocco, and MassBay Transportation Authority GM Patrick Moynihan met Tuesday to come up with a plan to bridge a $30-40M funding gap in Patriots Owner Robert Kraft's proposal to build a new 70,000-seat South Boston football stadium, according to the BOSTON GLOBE. Kerasiotes and Moynihan are seeking ways to pay for infrastructure improvements necessary to avoid overwhelming residential neighborhoods with traffic. A source in the Weld administration said officials will respond to Kraft by the end of January (David Halbfinger, BOSTON GLOBE, 1/3).
