CT Congressman Pitches $10 Billion Plan That Includes Two Tolled Tunnels for Hartford

Hartford Courant reports, “With Hartford largely blocked from its waterfront by major highways and often gridlocked with traffic, Congressman John B. Larson [D-Hartford] is calling for a massive, two-tunnel, multi-year solution that could cost an estimated $10 billion to remove the bottleneck at Interstates 84 and 91. The bold plan . . . would have tolls at the entrances to the tunnels, but Larson said the exact prices for motorists have yet to be determined. The state legislature, which has been consistently reluctant to approve tolls in the past, would be required to vote on the tunnel tolls.”
