The Griffin Line corridor begins just north of Hartford!s Union Station and terminates at Day Hill
Road in Windsor. The State of Connecticut purchased the right-of-way in 1981. It sat dormant until 1994, when the state designated the Central New England Railroad as the new operator. The Griffin Line is a single-track freight line still owned by the State of Connecticut.
Eversource has an easement along the Griffin Line for transmission lines. The easement comprised of two 17’-wide zones, one on each side of the track starting 8’ from the track’s centerline. The easement runs approximately from Woodland Street to the Eversource sub- station located South of Huckleberry Lane, Bloomfield. The corridor passes through some areas of wetlands but is not located within a Natural Diversity Database area of concern.
