How Connecticut’s Transportation Outlook Has Changed in Just Six Months
POSTED BY: JOSEPH CUTRUFO JULY 6, 2015
It’s been said that life moves pretty fast, and if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
With the progress we’ve seen in the Nutmeg State during the last several months, the same could be said for transportation policy change in Connecticut.
At the outset of 2015, highway tolls were considered taboo, nobody knew what was on the governor’s long-term transportation agenda, there was no lockbox to stop raids on transportation funds, two-way and parking-protected bike lanes were illegal, and CTfastrak service still hadn’t launched. In six short months, however, all of that has changed. Read the full story here.

Stop building and widening highways. More highways will just encourage longer commutes. Instead focus on improved public transportation and bicycle infrastructure.
