DARIEN, Conn. -- One of the platforms at the Noroton Heights train station in Darien has been completely demolished as part of a platform replacement project, according to the Darien Times.

The project officially started on March 27, and is scheduled to be completed on Nov. 30, 2018, according to the state Department of Transportation. The Darien Times posted a video of crews demolishing the northbound platform, which is now gone.

The DOT said that the $6.27 million project involves the replacement of the northbound and southbound platforms, including guardrails, hand rails, bearings, an eastbound platform shelter, illumination upgrades and minor appurtenances. The project includes two winter shutdowns in 2016-17 and 2017-18.

The Darien Times reported that the work is being performed in stages so that the station does not have to completely close on either side. The southern side of the station parking lot is losing about 30 spaces as a result of the construction, according to the Darien Times.
