After noticing some work developing in the south station parking lot, the Old Greenwich Association reached out to town officials to find out if the long anticipated train bridges construction project was about to begin. In fact, the project has indeed begun.
The State of Connecticut Department of Transportation has commenced work of “Rehabilitation of Metro-North Railroad Bridge(s).” In addition to to replacing the Sound Beach and Tomac Avenue bridges, CT DOT will make improvements to the Railroad Station and the South Commuter Parking lot at the Stamford Bound in Old Greenwich. The project is a joint effort between the CT DOT and Metro North which will take place over the course of four years.
As promised, a website has been created that will allow residents to check for anticipated delays, construction updates, traffic pattern changes and more. The website will also provide information on the specifics of the project, and give people a way to contact CT DOT directly with questions or concerns.
