Governor Lamont Presents CT2030 Transportation Plan

NEWINGTON, CT — With six of the worst traffic bottlenecks in the country and 65 percent of its highways more than three decades old with 12 percent of its bridges rated in poor condition, virtually anyone who regularly uses Connecticut’s transportation system agrees that the state needs to make targeted improvements that reduce congestion and make travel quicker, safer, convenient and reliable.

But with the way the state currently funds transportation projects, which mainly involves in-state residents paying virtually all of the costs, the funding to not only make these improvements but keep the existing system in a state of good repair is simply not there.

Working with transportation experts, federal officials, Democratic and Republican lawmakers and neighboring states, Governor Ned Lamont has developed a detailed, fiscally responsible plan that specifically targets the state’s worst transportation problems while financing them in a way that delivers the highest possible return on investment at the lowest possible cost to Connecticut residents.

CT2030 is Governor Lamont’s ten-year vision to create a multi-modal, congestion-reduced Connecticut through smart enhancement projects in the state’s highways, trains, buses, airports and ports.

The plan invests $14 billion in the state’s roads and bridges and $7 billion in its public transit system by focusing on projects that prioritizes and pays for the most vital improvements for Connecticut residents, while doing so in a realistic way. Projects fall into two categories: system preservation and maintenance, and enhancement projects that can be achieved over the next decade.
