Governor Malloy: "We have more to do because traffic congestion still costs the average person an extra 42 hours away from your family each year.
And for our economy, it’s the equivalent of 97 million dollars in lost time and wasted fuel, each and every day.
All told roads and bridges that are either deficient or overly-congested cost Connecticut drivers a total of 4.2 billion dollars annually.
It’s harming us and the health of our children with additional air pollution and smog.
Simply put, our investments have not kept pace with our needs, and our residents and businesses are paying the price.
It’s unacceptable. We need a new approach."
