Town holds ceremony to unveil grant improvements to train station

The town is holding a ribbon cutting ceremony to unveil new canopy structures covering the staircases at the railroad station and other improvements on the New York bound-side of the downtown Fairfield Train Station on Unquowa Road on Friday, Feb. 15, at 10 a.m. The improvements are the result of a $100,000 Small Town Economic Assistance Program (STEAP) grant the town had received.

Town officials, members of the Fairfield state delegation and Parking Authority members and staff will take part in the ceremony.

Grant funding was used to install permanent canopy structures to cover the staircases on both sides of the train tracks. Lighting was provided under the canopies. In addition, the stairs, which were badly worn and uneven, will be resurfaced in the spring.

“This is an important project for the thousands of commuters who have to use these stairs in inclement weather,” First Selectman Mike Tetreau said. “This project will go a long way in ensuring their safety and comfort throughout the year.”
