HARTFORD -- Trumbull is set to receive $500,000 in state funding to repave and repair Corporate Drive, the main artery through a 46-acre industrial office park that employs more than 1,000 workers.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy on Wednesday announced the latest allocation from the Small Town Economic Assistance Program. Also receiving grants are Bolton, Branford, Burlington, Chaplin, Columbia, Durham, East Lyme, Granby, Kent, Marlborough, North Haven, Old Lyme and Union.
"These grants are critical to many small towns across the state that need this funding to complete important capital improvement projects that otherwise may never get financed," Malloy said.
"The town of Trumbull is very appreciative that the state has recognized the importance of the Corporate Drive area as an employment center, not only to the region, but to Connecticut as a whole," Trumbull First Selectman Timothy Herbst said.
"I am confident that this investment will solidify the local commitment of existing companies on Corporate Drive, while advancing impending projects that will accommodate new and expanding businesses," Herbst said.
The money will cover work that includes replacing damaged and deteriorated curbing and replacing and upgrading stormwater catch basins.
"Hundreds of people work on or near Trumbull's Corporate Drive, and this investment in our infrastructure is crucial to supporting local businesses and attracting new ones," said state Sen. Anthony Musto, D-Trumbull.
State Rep. Dave Rutigliano, R-Trumbull, said, "These monies will help in continuing economic development in Trumbull. It is good to see Trumbull getting back something from Hartford."
