Feds OK With Connecticut Tolls

If Connecticut installs highway tolls, then it will not risk losing any of its federal funds meant for infrastructure upgrades, Gov. Ned Lamont said Tuesday.

The federal government has typically provided to states reimbursement for investments in transportation or infrastructure related projects. If the state-funded a project at 20 percent of the overall price, the federal government would provide the remaining 80 percent.

When asked whether Connecticut could install tolls without risk of losing any of that money, Lamont said the answer is yes.
