Hartford Line construction will cause temporary schedule changes for rail passengers

Train schedules for the Hartford Line will be disrupted from May 28 to Nov. 1 due to several planned construction projects. According to the state Department of Transportation, construction is set to take place weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., with further details on schedule changes expected to be released next month on its website. The DOT says that due to the construction, select weekday trains will be replaced by bus service. In November, the DOT announced it had received $105 million in federal funding, with $41.9 million in matching funds, that would bring additional tracks to the Hartford Line, as well as improve signals and grade crossings. There are also plans to start construction on an Enfield station next year. A groundbreaking was held at the Windsor Locks station in 2022, and the project is expected to be complete next summer.
