HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The State Bond Commission has approved $5.75 million to help pay for the design and environmental costs of several new rail stations in Connecticut.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said Monday the funding is part of his larger, planned overhaul of the state’s transportation system. That proposal is expected to be unveiled next month.

The $5.75 million will be combined with another $4 million in previously approved funding. It will be used toward new stations in Enfield, West Hartford, Newington and North Haven along the expanded New Haven-to-Springfield corridor.

The funding will also help cover improvements to existing stations in Windsor Locks and Windsor, as well as a location study for a future Hamden station.

New stations are also planned on the New Haven Line in Orange and Bridgeport.
