Restoration of Berlin Train Station Begins this Spring

I have worked with my colleagues in Berlin’s legislative delegation to secure state investments in the Berlin train station. Berlin’s train station will be on the new Hartford Line, which will run from New Haven to Springfield. I was recently given an update on the progress of the train station restoration progress, which aims to improve the accessibility and use of the train station while maintaining its historic character.

Berlin train stationA temporary platform will be used for the duration of the restoration. Beginning this May, contractors will remediate any lead paint, asbestos and PCBs in the train station. In June and July, the contractor will examine the trusses in the attic of the station to ensure that they are secure and viable for continued use. The brick exterior of the building will be restored or replaced as needed. A new HVAC system, public announcement system and display board will be installed. Contractors will ensure that any historic features of the building are maintained, and that any features that have been damaged by weather and time will be restored.

The train station renovation is expected to be completed by the end of this year. The work being done on the station will be of some inconvenience to commuters, but I believe the end product will be worth it. I look forward to seeing how the new station and the completion of a Hartford to New Haven train line will help generate new economic activity in Berlin’s downtown area.
