STAMFORD - State officials announced plans today to make major improvements at the Stamford Train Station, including two new parking garages.

The Department of Transportation commissioner says there will be 2,300 spaces designated for commuters, which is 300 more than there are currently. The overall project is what the DOT is calling transit-oriented development and includes retail, commercial and residential space.

"We're going to be looking at something that will enhance and embellish our transportation needs, our sustainability, our transit-oriented development programs and all the other things we've been working hard to accomplish,” Mayor Mike Pavia says.

Construction is slated to start next spring, but it will be another three years after that before commuters can park in the new spots. Once the new garages are complete, the oldest section of the current garage will be demolished.
