A press release from Gov. Dannel Malloy’s office on Tuesday said $4 million for the design, engineering and construction of a new dock yard on the Danbury Branch Rail Line in Norwalk will allow the state to increase capacity and service on the Danbury line. But it does not appear to be that clear-cut.
The money is part of a $24.9 million package approved by the state Bond Commission on Tuesday, July 28, to fund the first batch of projects under Malloy’s Let’s Go CT! transportation initiative.
Two other projects would affect this general area:
- $10 million was approved for the design and engineering of widening I-84 in Danbury between exits 3 and 8.
- $400,000 to review how the state can implement a bus rapid transit corridor for Route 1 between Norwalk and Stamford.
