The coalition behind the bipartisan infrastructure bill is fragile, and the money it promises rail is both historic and inadequate.
The kids are back in school. Can the governor and his chief of staff lure back lawmakers for a special session on transportation?
The legislature appears no closer to returning in special session to address the governor’s proposal to place tolls on the Merritt Parkway and Interstates 84, 91 and 95.
Gov. Ned Lamont on tolls and lawmakers: “I’m asking them to make a tough vote that’s going to really be for the long-term future of the state, not immediate gratification.”
No state has attempted what Connecticut is now promoting: A plan to install toll on existing highways throughout the state, as opposed to a single road, bridge or tunnel.
Gov.-elect Ned Lamont has recruited Joseph J. Giulietti, the former president of Metro-North, the commuter railroad that is Connecticut’s vital economic link to New York City, to be his commissioner of transportation, multiple sources said Thursday.
