This project includes construction of a new 100’ Tall central warehouse required for the overall New Haven Line to serve as the main distribution point for stores material for the storerooms contained within the individual shops, as well as for major components of the M-8 cars. The warehouse utilizes a high density automatic storage and retrieval system (ASRS) located directly adjacent to the Component Change Out Shop
About the Facilities Improvement Program
Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) is revitalizing and expanding the existing New Haven Rail Yard (NHRY) into a state-of-the-art, coordinated facility that provides efficient and effective storage, dispatching, inspection, maintenance, and cleaning of rail cars.
Located on approximately 74 acres of state-owned land that comprises the existing NHRY site, the Facilities Improvement Program is being undertaken as multiple construction projects. Click on image below to open a full size NHRY Location Site Map.
Facilities improvements will provide the space, equipment, and administrative support needed to operate and maintain a new generation of rail cars and will coordinate new facilities with existing facilities. CTDOT’s program of improvements to the NHRY will support rail transit services in the state of Connecticut well into the twenty-first century.
