Stamford gets $17M for 3,000 foot greenway along Mill River to connect West Side to train station

A project to connect the city’s West Side to the Stamford train station through a pedestrian corridor just got a $17 million federal boost. The plan, known as the “West Side Neighborhood Connector Project,” would create a 12-foot-wide path to fill a 3,000-foot missing gap in the city’s Mill River Greenway network, among other improvements. The project funding was announced this week, along with another $4.8 million in federal dollars for transportation projects in Norwalk, Bridgeport, Hartford, Naugatuck and Western Connecticut. Gov. Ned Lamont said the federal funding would help increase safety and mobility throughout the state.
