Revenues From Tolls
CT vs. Neighboring States
A couple of points to consider:
Tolls are no longer the archaic toll booth structure of the past. They are an electronic overhang.
CT residents would have to pay a fee as well, albeit discounted.
The revenue would offset what we currently allocate in taxes towards transportation/road and bridges repair.
Fees from tolls is one of the few ways to capture revenue from out-of state travelers and commercial vehicles.
