CTDOT ANNOUCEMENT: BERLIN TRAIN STATION BUILDING FIRE

The December 21st fire at the historic Berlin train station building was most unfortunate. As a result of the extensive damage caused by the fire, the remaining walls of the 116-year-old building are no longer structurally stable and pose a safety risk therefore, the remainder of the building is currently being demolished. Demolition crews will attempt to salvage items of historical significance, such as cast iron radiators, metal ends of the wooden benches and metal ceiling tiles.

Demolition debris from the building will remain on site until the salvage operation is complete and the material can be safely removed from the site. The future use of the building site will be determined in the coming weeks.

The heat from the fire caused minor damage to the new CTrail Hartford Line station, currently under construction to the north of the historic station. This damage was limited to exterior metal panels and will be repaired accordingly as construction of the new station continues. The portion of the new platform immediately adjacent to the historic station was in the early stages of construction at the time of the fire and also experienced some damage.

Amtrak trains continue to make stops at the Berlin station. Amtrak imposed a slow order (4 mph max) for trains operating through the station after the fire was extinguished. Once the demolition work is completed, it is anticipated that the slow order will be lifted and train operations will return to normal.

No determination has been made regarding the cause of the fire, which falls under the jurisdiction of the local and State fire marshals.

"Rapid-Transit Bus Eyed For Route 1"

The bus would connect downtown New Haven to the Connecticut Post Mall in Milford, passing through West Haven and Orange on the way.

For all the money they spent on laying the new track with concrete ties, would it have killed them to make the track relatively straight? That looks so ridiculously lumpy.

Effective 2017.06.04, bus route numbers in Waterbury, Meriden and Wallingford change to three-digit numbers as part of a CTTransit-wide effort to create a single statewide route numbering system.
