Federal funding approved by House for Ridgefield transportation proposal

The U.S. House of Representatives has passed the INVEST in America Act, reauthorizing surface transportation projects. 

More than $1.8 million would fund a majority of  pedestrian and bicycle improvements around the Branchville Train Station in Ridgefield.  $2.4 million would fund a majority of the cost of the replacement of the Comstock Brook Bridge in Wilton. 

4th District Congressman Jim Himes says he secured nearly $20 million in transportation projects in this bill for Southwest Connecticut that will cover bicycle and pedestrian improvements, bridge rehabilitation and replacement, and updates to the Stamford Transportation Center. The transportation recipients were selected from projects included on Connecticut’s Statewide Transportation Improvement Program, which is constituted of priority projects.
