Gov. Dannel Malloy announced Thursday the Connecticut Department of Transportation’s plan for closing the $188 million funding gap toward the $465 million project.
Temporary repairs to the Walk Bridge can begin right away now that the state Bond Commission has given the OK to the $3 million fix.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is seeking to borrow $3 million in state bonds to fix a railroad bridge in Connecticut that blocked commuter rail traffic in May and June.
“There is no doubt that we are now seeing the effects of decades of neglect when it comes to investing in our infrastructure,” Malloy said.
Connecticut and every other state in the nation is dealing with failing infrastructure – and no money to pay for repairs.
Metro-North says repairs were completed to the Walk Bridge just before 9 a.m.
