STAMFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Nearly $1.5 billion in investments are going into Amtrak and rail safety in Connecticut.
Senator Chris Murphy will join other State transportation leaders in Stamford Train Station on State Street to celebrate on Monday.
Senator Murphy is expected to talk about repair needs along rail lines here in Connecticut and also talk about how the newly approved money will make rail travel safer and more reliable.
Murphy fought to get $1.4 billion earmarked in the latest federal budget for Amtrak which is an increase of $19 million from last year. An extra $19 million will be dedicated to the Northeast Corridor.
