WALLINGFORD, Conn. (WTNH) – U.S. Senator Chris Murphy will receive an update on the progress of the New Haven-Hartford-Springfield rail line on Monday.
Sen. Murphy will see the “track construction machine,” which is currently building a second track parallel to the existing single track that is used by Amtrak trains.
This double-tracking will allow more frequent train service and make for easier commuter rail service between New Haven, Hartford and Springfield.
Construction is scheduled to be completed and service is expected to launch in January 2018.
