Walsh Group signs with DOT for Windsor Locks train station project

The state Department of Transportation signed on with The Walsh Group on Friday for the $65 million train station project. The state expects a groundbreaking in late August, which should launch other downtown revitalization efforts, Windsor Locks First Selectman Paul Harrington said. Mixed-use residential and commercial projects would be ideal, Harrington said, creating areas where people could live, work and play, with convenient access to public transportation. The DOT is coordinating the project, but Harrington said both town and state officials are looking to attract serious developers with solid plans that will enhance the downtown area, the local economy and quality of life. The DOT has set an 18 to 24 month timeline for the project. Harrington said he hopes development projects can run concurrently.
