Zeoli says state spent millions on Orange train station plan before killing the project

The state’s budget crisis has derailed longtime plans for a train station near Yale’s West campus off Marsh Hill Road that town officials hoped would provide convenience and an economic boost to the area. The project, expected to have cost $50 million to $60 million, and around which the state already has spent at least $8 million, Zeoli said, was to be a public/private partnership with Orange Land Development LLC, led by Edward M. Crowley of Branford, former president of nearby Dichello Distributors and founder of Stony Creek Brewery in Branford.
