Connecticut's transportation funding crisis is getting worse.
We must act NOW to implement a fair, long-term solution to fix our roads without burdening taxpayers with 100% of the cost.

Connecticut’s Roads and Bridges are Aging and we need a solution NOW.

50TH

500%

INCREASE IN COST

every $1 of deferred maintenance costs an additional $5 in future repairs

Options to address this crisis include:

Borrowing billions

to fund road repairs, thereby burdening taxpayers to pay back debt and interest for generations.

Raising the gas tax

or other motor vehicle related fees to fund road repairs.

Doing nothing

and watching as our roads and bridges get worse.

Implementing tolls

like most other states, to fund road repairs with out-of-state drivers and truckers paying more, and in-state drivers paying less.

Here's what tolls mean for CT:

Fairness for CT Drivers

Connecticut drivers will get a discount on tolls. 60% of the revenue will come from out-of-state drivers and trucks.

Since Connecticut is a frequent pass-thru state for out-of-state drivers, and trucks do the most damage to our roads, these groups should pay more instead of putting the whole burden on Connecticut taxpayers.

Public Safety

Our roads and bridges are not as safe as they should be. Tolling ensures long-term funding for these repairs.

57% Connecticut roads are in poor condition, and 1/3 of our bridges are structurally deficient or functionally obsolete. Every year, we fall short on the necessary funds to fix this crisis. Tolling means a steady stream of funding for repairs that keep us safe.

Economic Benefit

Companies and jobs are fleeing Connecticut due to poor transportation infrastructure. Revenue from tolling can be used to reduce congestion and attract companies to the state.

Without investing in our transportation system, Connecticut will be unable to compete with the region and will continue losing jobs and companies to neighboring states with better infrastructure.

Less Time on the Road

Toll revenue will fund much-needed road repairs so Connecticut drivers spend less time in traffic and more time with their families.

Without funding road repairs, congestion will continue to get worse year after year and major road improvements cannot be made. This means we'll lose even more time to traffic and have less time to spend with our families.
