Gov. Dannel Malloy and the U.S. Department of Transportation announced the release of $120.9 million in Federal Railroad Administration funding to Connecticut to advance the New Haven-Hartford-Springfield rail program. 

The state will match the funding with $141.9 million of its own money, Malloy said in a statement on Monday. Enhanced rail service among the three cities, the latter in western Massachusetts, is expected to start in 2016.
