About the Program


Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) is revitalizing and expanding the existing New Haven Rail Yard (NHRY) into a state-of-the-art, coordinated facility that provides efficient and effective storage, dispatching, inspection, maintenance, and cleaning of rail cars. 

Located on approximately 74 acres of state-owned land that comprises the existing NHRY site, the Facilities Improvement Program is being undertaken as multiple construction projects. Image at right opens to a full size Location Site Map.

These facilities improvements will provide the space, equipment, and administrative support needed to operate and maintain a new generation of rail cars and will coordinate new facilities with existing facilities. CTDOT’s program will support rail transit services in the state of Connecticut well into the twenty-first century.
