Connecticut DOT Releases Updated Five-Year Capital Plan with Renewed Sustainability Commitment

NEWINGTON, CT — The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) releases an interim five-year Capital Plan, covering fiscal years 2022-2026 with a focus on reducing greenhouse gas emission, protecting natural and community resources, and improving the health and safety of residents. The interim five-year plan includes capital investments in roadways and bridges, public transportation, and bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure.

“Strategic investments in infrastructure, increased access to public transportation, and new initiatives that reduce our carbon emissions are critically important to economic growth in Connecticut and the health and safety of residents. Our interim five-year plan demonstrates our ongoing commitment to safety, equity, and resiliency,” said CTDOT Commissioner Joseph Giulietti.

CTDOT anticipates utilizing $2.25 billion in total Capital Program funding in federal fiscal year 2022, which began October 1, 2021, including approximately $1.36 billion for roadway and bridge infrastructure, $844 million for bus and rail, and $49 million in support of agency facility repairs and improvements.

CTDOT focuses on road and bridge projects that address transportation mobility and safety needs of the entire state. Improvements are slated for all over Connecticut that improve existing infrastructure, from local bridges and intersections to major projects. CTDOT also operates more than 2,500 traffic signals and is embarking on a 10-year program to upgrade the system.

Given the trends in the needs of commuters, such as more telework options, a greater focus is on service improvement and customer experience projects. As part of Governor Ned Lamont’s TIME FOR CT, funds will be used on track upgrades, bridge repairs, and new rail fleet in order to create faster and safer rail service in the state.
