‘We’re not gonna be doing tolls. Period’: Historic bipartisan infrastructure bill means no tolls in CT, Lamont says

The $1.2 trillion plan – which passed the House last week – will bring more than $5 billion in investments to Connecticut. More than half a billion for bridge replacement and repairs, and $3.5 billion for highways. Never before in state history has Connecticut received such a substantial amount of money from Washington D.C. During a recent taping of “This Week in Connecticut,” with Dennis House, News 8’s Chief Political Correspondent Jodi Latina asked Lt. Gov. Susan Bysiewicz, “Does this mean your administration will take tolls off the table?” At the time, Bysiewicz would not definitively say they were. However, on Monday, Gov. Lamont told us, “No, that door is closed, Jodi. We needed that money in order to pay our part for transportation. Now we’ve got other ways to pay for transportation. So we’re not gonna be doing tolls. Period, dead stop.”
