Time To Fix Connecticut’s Aging Transportation Infrastructure

57% percent of Connecticut’s roads are in poor condition, and over one-third of Connecticut’s bridges are either structurally deficient or functionally obsolete. There are currently three options being put forward to fix the state’s failing transportation systems. The first is to continue to do nothing. The second is to borrow billions of dollars through bonding, which would add hundreds of millions of dollars in debt for Connecticut taxpayers. The third is to place tolls on major highways, similar to other states, with discounts being provided to Connecticut drivers and commuters while out-of-state drivers and truckers pay their fair share.
