CT Newspaper Looks at $10 Billion or So Hartford Tunnel Plan. (Tolling? It’s Iffy.)

The Connecticut Mirror takes a deep dive on US Representative John Larson’s roughly $10 billion proposal to build tunnels to take I-91 and I-84 underground through Hartford, reporting that “the concept is so vast, complex and potentially expensive – it would be longer than Boston’s “Big Dig” tunnels – that many doubt it could be realized.” As for project financing, the congressman cites President-elect Trump’s infrastructure plan and tolling, but the article cautions, “Though Connecticut is the only state on the Atlantic seaboard without highway tolls, adopting them has thus far been a hard sell.”
