Project : Merritt 7 Railroad Station Improvements

Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) -- Norwalk, Connecticut

CHA is providing transportation planning and design services for improvements to the Merritt 7 Station on Metro-North Railroad’s Danbury Branch Line. The project includes a new high-level platform and canopy, pedestrian overpass, surface parking improvements, and multimodal improvements to address current station needs and the future ridership forecasts of CTDOT’s Danbury Branch Electrification Feasibility Study.

CHA worked with CTDOT and stakeholders to develop several alternative station and parking improvement concepts and advance the preferred concept. The concepts included provisions for improved public access to the station; new sidewalks, bike facilities, and bus transit accommodations; and private property acquisition to accommodate 195 new parking spaces for the station.
