A panel has recommended that Connecticut should consider returning tolls to its highways to raise revenue and better manage congestion.
The Transportation Strategy Board issued its report on Friday and calls for legislation to pay for a comprehensive review and analysis of electronic tolls and congestion pricing.
The board said that without some new source of revenue, Connecticut will be unable to pay for numerous highway projects on the drawing board.
So! How many legislators out there are willing to vote for a bill putting up toll booths on I-95, I-84 and I-91?
