Hartford, CT –  The Connecticut Department of Transportation recently announced plans to upgrade Hartford’s Union Station. The $3.1 million contract was awarded to O&G Industries.

The project involves constructing a new 260-ft.-long, high-level passenger platform and egress stair tower finished with new decking, decorative railings, and ornamental metal fencing. Within the station, areas will be renovated to house new electrical and communications rooms.

There will be significant upgrades to improve the customer experience including new exterior lighting, signage, public address, and passenger information display systems. Security upgrades include emergency lighting and call boxes, video surveillance, fire alarms, and bird control devices.

The project is expected to be completed in April 2016.
