NORWALK, Conn. -- As part of an effort to foster communication between the Department of Transportation and residents, Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk, Darien) announced that passengers may now relay comments directly to the CTDOT through a link on his State Senate website.

The page may be accessed at this link .

“This link will provide constituents with direct access to the Department of Transportation’s Walk Bridge Team,” said Duff. “It is important that information flow both ways, not just from Connecticut Department of Transportation to passengers but from passengers back to the DOT as well.

"I hope this link on my website will help to facilitate that communication. I want to thank the DOT for making the agency accessible to the thousands of passengers who rely on our rail system and those more locally impacted by the project.”

The website will provide constituents with quick access and updates on construction. Users will be able to submit comments and questions directly to the DOT’s Walk Bridge Team. The team will reply with accurate and timely information and copy Senator Duff’s office on the response to keep him informed of his constituent’s concerns and comments.

The DOT is undertaking the Walk Bridge Program to address the deteriorating railroad bridge over the Norwalk River in Norwalk. As one of the oldest movable bridges in the country, the Walk Bridge is a critical transportation link on the Northeast Corridor between Washington, D.C., New York City, and Boston carrying four tracks of Metro-North Railroad, Amtrak and freight service.
