Talks continue on site for North Haven train station
Negotiations are continuing to turn an old factory building into a new train station.
First Selectman Michael Freda is in discussions with the state Department of Transportation and Cambrex Corp., a pharmaceutical company out of East Rutherford, New Jersey, that owns the property at the corner of State and Devine streets that once was Humphrey Chemical.
“One of our goals here over the past several years is to work with the Department of Transportation to deliver a train station for North Haven,” Freda said. “The designated spot is at the corner of State Street and Devine Street at the railroad tracks and commuter parking lots.”
The project serves several purposes, Freda said: It will not only provide easy access to Metro-North trains for residents living in North Haven, Hamden and surrounding areas, but the station itself will be an impetus for economic growth in that area. But it will take a lot of work to see it come to fruition, he said.
“The Department of Transportation is committed to designing this train station out to its fullest,” Freda said. “The big ‘if’ now is if and when the federal government or the Railroad Commission will fund the construction costs of that.”
