Pawtucket/Central Falls station is a disused railroad station located in the Rhode Island cities of Pawtucket and Central Falls. It opened in 1916 to replace separate stations in the two cities and was closed in 1981. The state of Rhode Island intends to open a replacement station slightly to the south around 2022.
