The new plan proposes 14 strategically placed toll locations on or near state bridges, with dedicated revenue streams to support rehabilitation work on each span. Lamont’s offering to sweeten the pot, by offering 5-percent of revenues flowing to the communities that host the highway tolls. The massive transportation program includes $5 billion in major upgrades to the Metro-North Commuter Railroad, including a new, first-time direct connection from the Danbury and Waterbury branch lines to Grand Central Station in New York. Included in the plan are 132 new rail cars and 30 dual-power locomotives for Metro-North, whose 40 million annual passenger trips makes it the busiest train line in the country. Overall, the goal would be to shave as much as 15 minutes off the current train trips to New York.
