Lamont then clarified he was referring to the downtown train station on Water Street. “Right now our plan is to look at existing stations,” he said, adding later: “I want to make sure existing stations are up to speed, state of the art.” Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced $2.75 million for the design in 2014 during a successful re-election campaign that relied on strong Democratic turnout in big cities like Bridgeport. But it has been clear for some time now that the East Side station was in trouble. Lamont acknowledged during Monday’s stop in Bridgeport that the need to scale back his tolling pitches to try to win legislative votes also meant changing the priorities of how to invest the reduced revenues.
