Tolls could be down the road for southwestern CT driversPosted: Updated:
The state's Transportation Strategy Board says lawmakers should consider putting tolls back on state highways.
The state got rid of its tolls back in 1989, six years after an accident at the Stratford toll plaza left seven dead. Now, the strategy board is recommending legislators pay for analysis of electronic tolls. The board says tolls could raise revenue and manage traffic.
However, drivers are looking to put the brakes on the board's recommendations. Several drivers told News 12 Connecticut they believe tolls would slow down traffic and cause congestion.
