In September 2017, construction crews rebuilt a railroad bridge over Batchelder Road in Windsor, Connecticut. The project replaced existing steel beams with a new closed deck precast concrete structure which allows trains to operate at over 80 miles per hour on the bridge. Height of the abutments was first increased to accommodate the new beams, as well as allow larger vehicles to pass under, such as buses and box trucks. This bridge will have two rail lines to increase passenger service from New Haven to Windsor and on to Springfield.
Construction on Batchelder Road is expected to be completed by end of October 2017.
