New Station to be Built at Windsor Locks

The Federal Railroad Administration has awarded a $17.4 million grant to Connecticut to be used to build a new station in Windsor Locks on the Hartford Line.

The depot will be built a mile north of the existing station and is part of a larger transit-oriented development project in downtown Windsor Locks.

Windsor Locks also has received more than $321,000 in grant funding from the Connecticut Department of Transportation for pedestrian improvements as part of the project.

The federal grant money will also be used for track and signal work, street-level rail crossings, and Amtrak rail yard work.

The Hartford Line is used by Amtrak and CTrail Line trains.
