REP. DARGAN PLEASED DESIGN FUNDS FOR WEST HAVEN
RAIL STATION AWAITS STATE BOND COMMISSION ACTION
State Representative Stephen Dargan is pleased that $11 million in funding earmarked for the design of the new Rail Station in West Haven on the New Haven Line is on this Friday’s (March 30th) state Bond Commission Agenda.
“This is certainly good news and I am pleased this important funding is expected to be approved when the state Bond Commission meets to take action,” Rep. Dargan said. “This project is not only critical to those who will be directly affected by a new station, but this is a significant step forward as we strive to improve mass transit statewide.
Rep. Dargan added he appreciated the Governor’s effort and her placing the request for design funds on the commission’s agenda.
“We have been working for a long time to secure this funding,” Rep. Dargan said.
Rep. Dargan is House Chair of the Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee.
