$1.25 trillion infrastructure package approved by Congress will fix some of Connecticut’s biggest transportation headaches. Here’s a look at some of the specific projects.

The Connecticut Congressional delegation hailed the passage of the $1.25 trillion bill as they stood Monday on the train platform at Hartford’s Union Station. They were surrounded by construction workers who will be building the projects that include railroads and highways, among others. Connecticut would receive $5.38 billion over the next five years or approximately $1 billion per year. This includes $3.29 billion for major road projects, $1.3 billion for buses and railroads, $561 million to strengthen bridges, and $100 million for extending computer broadband coverage around the state and to low-income families.
