Major Boost for Bridgeport Harbor Project
The State Bond Commission is expected to approve $9 million in funding for harbor development in Bridgeport, CT, according to Representative Steve Stafstrom.
“This is a vital step toward fully realizing the untapped potential that Bridgeport has to be the hub of maritime commerce and activity for the region,“ Stafstrom said.
This round of funding will assist with phase 1 of shoreline improvements.
This phase consists of rebuilding and raising the elevation of the bulkhead around the peninsula in accordance with federal and state requirements, construction of the public access walkway and associated dredging and environmental remediation.
