Nothing’s free anymore—except a parking space at the State of Connecticut Department of Transportation’s new Old Saybrook Train Station parking lot. The 199-space state parking lot on North Main Street opened to train travelers on Feb. 4.

View northeast from New DOT Parking Lot: Missing handicapped ramps connecting the new Department of Transportation (DOT) parking lot and the Old Saybrook Train Station platform delayed the lot’s opening. Until the ramps are built later this spring, the state DOT has leased handicapped parking spots at the train station from Saybrook Junction’s owner.

With a ceremonious ribbon cutting on Feb. 4, Lieutenant Governor Nancy Wyman officially opened the new 199-space parking lot at the Old Saybrook train station to train travelers.

Even though the Connecticut Department of Transportation (DOT) contractor had finished most of the parking lot—paving, striping, lighting, and sidewalks were all installed by early December 2015—the new spaces were off-limits to cars. That’s because of project coordination issues between DOT, Amtrak, and the contractor that delayed construction of planned handicapped ramps connecting the lot to the train platform.

The ramps’ completion now is planned for spring, but another solution allowed the state parking lot to open anyway. Until the handicapped ramps are completed, the DOT arranged with the owner of the Saybrook Station development to lease handicapped-accessible parking spaces next to the station. With that lease in place, the new train station parking lot opened for business last Thursday.
