Windsor Locks train station set to break ground in August

Windsor Locks First Selectman Paul Harrington took the next step towards construction of the $65 million Windsor Locks Train Station last week by signing a project authorization letter. At the June 22 Board of Selectmen meeting, Harrington announced that construction on the state and federally funded project will begin in August and take around 18 months to complete. The project is being funded by the Federal Railroad Administration with matching state grants. According to a document released by the state Department of Transportation, the project is expected to cost $65 million. The authorization letter notes that the town has no obligations to the state DOT with respect to cost, utilities, design phase, right-of-way phase, or construction phase of the project. Once completed, Windsor Locks will have full responsibility for ongoing maintenance of anything constructed under this project.
