Kennedy, Reed and First Selectman Cosgrove to Host Briefing on Branford Train Station
Meeting is open to the public and will be held on Wednesday, August 31 at 6:00 PM in the Branford Fire Department
BRANFORD, CT—Senator Ted Kennedy, Jr. (D-Branford), Representative Lonnie Reed, and Branford First Selectman James Cosgrove have invited town residents to attend a briefing by the Department of Transportation (DOT) on the Branford Train Station project. Improvements to Branford Train station were scheduled to have been completed last year, but the project has been plagued by setbacks. Kennedy, Reed and Cosgrove have received numerous calls and emails from town residents about the status of construction at the train station.
These local leaders scheduled a briefing from DOT on the train station, where they will express the concerns of their constituents and seek answers on the troubled project. They recently decided that this meeting should be opened to all town residents. DOT representatives will be available to provide information and answer questions on the current status of work at the train station.
“The Branford Train Station helps town residents commute every day and brings visitors who patronize our many local businesses. Branford cannot keep waiting for it to be restored to full operation,” said Senator Kennedy. “Our offices have been communicating with DOT and asked them to provide us with a formal briefing. We have heard from many community residents about this project, and invite town residents to come to this briefing. Local officials and DOT representatives will be on hand to provide information and answer any questions or concerns from the people of Branford.”
