Planned new station
The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) is moving ahead with plans to build a new train station in the town of Windsor Locks.
The new station, which would replace the current Amtrak-owned station at the south end of town, will be located just to the north of the historic station building on Main Street.
The new station is important for western Mass for two reasons —
- Windsor Locks is the station of choice for people living in Agawam and Longmeadow, since driving north (to Springfield) to catch a train headed south doesn’t make much sense, and
- This new station will be the transfer point for a new dedicated shuttle bus connection between the Hartford Line and Bradley Airport.
CTDOT will hold a public information meeting on Thur. September 19, 2019 from 6 pm until 8 pm at the Windsor Locks Town Hall, 50 Church Street, Windsor Locks, CT.
