BERLIN, CT (WFSB) -- Gov. Ned Lamont attended a groundbreaking ceremony for Steele Boulevard in Berlin on Wednesday morning.
It’s part of an $18 million transit development near the Berlin Train Station.
The Boulevard will connect the Steele Center to Farmington Avenue, and the station’s parking lot. It’ll feature apartments, a medical office, restaurant, and retail space.
During the ceremony, Lamont was interrupted several times by people shouting from the crowd, in response to the governor’s executive orders.
One man called out to the governor telling him to reopen the state.
Another asked who would be getting a $500 fine on Wednesday, referring to the size of the crowd at the groundbreaking ceremony.
In response to the interruptions, Lamont said at one point “If you think being incredibly rude is helping your cause, I think you’re wrong.”
On Tuesday evening, Lamont signed a new executive order that will fine people for not wearing a mask or face covering. It will also fine people for organizing or participating in a large gathering.
