Connecticut DOT Releases Updated Five-Year Capital Plan

NEWINGTON, CT — The Connecticut Department of Transportation releases its $9.7-billion five-year Capital Plan, covering fiscal years 2021-2025. The plan includes capital investments in the state’s multi-modal transportation network, including state-of-good-repair as well as upgrades across all modes of transportation — highways and bridges, public transportation, bicycle and pedestrian amenities, as well as state facilities.

"Our five-year plan demonstrates our commitment to responsible stewardship of our existing transportation network, while targeting much-needed upgrades to our roads and bridges, our growing transit system, and healthier, eco-friendly, non-motorized options," said DOT Commissioner Joe Giulietti.

The department anticipates utilizing $2.1 billion in total capital program funding in federal fiscal year 2021, which began October 1, including approximately $800 million for bus and rail assets and $1.3 billion for highway and bridge infrastructure. Over the five-year plan, $5.9 billion (62 percent) will go toward highway and bridge projects, $3.5 billion (36 percent) toward public transportation, and $245 million (2 percent) for facilities.

"As we roll out our program, we will remain focused on delivering projects on time and on budget," Giulietti said. "But we cannot lose sight of the fact that long-term funding for continued critical investments in our transportation infrastructure is very much uncertain."
