Hartford Rail Line Set To Open In May, But Fiscal Troubles Loom

The long-awaited $769 million New Haven-Hartford-Springfield commuter rail line remains on track to start up in May, but the huge project still doesn’t have enough funding for completion and is facing new financing problems. Malloy said earlier this month that the legislature must take swift action to provide new revenue for Connecticut’s Special Transportation Fund, which is rapidly running out of money for all kinds of road, rail and transit programs. He issued a list of some 400 projects around the state that will need to be put on hold “indefinitely” if no new financing is found.
