CT to build train station in Enfield, using nearly $32 million in state, federal funds

For the first time in more than 35 years, there are plans for trains to stop in Enfield, with construction of a new station to begin in less than two years. Designs will be completed in the summer of 2023, with plans to go out to bid for the project that fall, Garrett Eucalitto, deputy commissioner of the Department of Transportation, said at an announcement of the project Thursday. The state bonding will supply $15.86 million, according to a DOT statement. Through the federal Consolidated Rail Infrastructure and Safety Improvements grant program, the project received $13.86 million. The project is part of an effort by the state to improve rail service and by the town of Enfield to advance its Transit Oriented District plans. The increase in federal funds received for transportation in Connecticut is partially due to the state’s investment in its transportation and infrastructure improvements, Murphy said.
