The Critelli Commission + 10 years

In the “land of steady habits,” we don’t fix problems, we study them… over and over again. It’s been 10 years since then-Gov. M. Jodi Rell’s “blue ribbon” Critelli Commission report studying the reform of the Department of Transportation. You’ll remember that the study came after a construction scandal on I-84. And while much of the report addresses the dysfunction of the CDOT, I was pleased that the Commission’s chairman, then-Pitney Bowes Chairman Michael Critelli, also picked up on some suggestions for improving rail service.
