Will Toll Roads Make a Comeback in Connecticut?

WNPR reports, “Connecticut’s perennial debate over road tolls starts again this month, but this year there is more momentum after a state panel recommended automated tolling.” The report adds that Emil Frankel, former CDOT chief and USDOT assistant secretary, now a member of Governor Malloy’s transportation funding panel, says, “[I]f Connecticut wants to keep its roads open, lawmakers would have to raise the gas tax, divert a portion of sales tax toward transportation, and reinstate tolls.”
