NORWALK, Conn. — U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) will host a town hall at 11 a.m. Sunday at the Norwalk Public Library to hear from Connecticut residents why they’re upset with the state of Connecticut’s roads and severe traffic.
Murphy will take the feedback and stories he hears back to Washington, D.C. as he fights for increased aid for Connecticut’s transportation system.
Norwalk Mayor Harry Rilling, state Sen. Bob Duff and Executive Director Mark Abraham of Data Haven – a nonprofit organization that analyzes public data on transit systems and economic development – will join Murphy at the town hall.
As part of his ‘Fed Up’ listening campaign, Murphy called on U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx to collaborate with him and Connecticut’s commuters to secure federal investments in Connecticut’s failing transportation infrastructure.
Just a few months later, in December, Congress passed – for the first time in a decade – a long-term $305 billion transportation bill that preserves critical money sources for Connecticut and authorizes more than $1.4 billion of investments in Amtrak and rail safety along the Northeast Corridor.
The Norwalk Public Library is at 1 Belden Ave.
