STAMFORD, Conn. — The Metro-North Railroad bridge over Atlantic Street in Stamford may be replaced soon, as the State’s Bond Commission is expected to approve $50 million in funding for the project next week.
“Once completed, the project will benefit all vehicular drivers and pedestrians in the area,” State Rep. Gerald Fox III (D-146) of Stamford, said in a news release.
The new bridge is expected to improve vehicular capacity and pedestrian access, and the project will maintain or create about 1,575 construction-related jobs, according to the release.
The commission is scheduled to meet at 10:30 a.m. Jan. 25, and the bridge project is on the agenda.
