Amtrak Bridge Improvement Project

April 29, 2019

This project has been on my radar since the day I was elected over eight years ago. I am ecstatic that it is finally coming to fruition and that we were able to allocate the needed resources to make it happen.

The Connecticut Department of Transportation recently announced the start of construction activities for painting of the Bridge carrying Amtrak over Route 529 on New Britain Avenue in Elmwood, beginning today.

The $331,400.00 project, which consists of abrasive blast removal of the existing paint surface and re-painting of the fascia beam of the bridge, is scheduled to be completed on May 19, 2019.
