Connecticut DOT unveils long-range transportation plan
The plan, which is a federally mandated policy document, outlines strategies and actions for addressing transportation issues and needs in Connecticut.
The plan’s foundation is Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy’s “Let’s GO CT” strategic transportation initiative, which identified $100 billion in investments to help preserve and enhance the state’s transportation infrastructure, according to a CTDOT press release.
The department will hold two public information sessions in January to present the draft plan and gather feedback. CTDOT will continue accepting feedback through Feb. 1, with the final plan slated to be published in spring 2018.
