What's your opinion on highway tolls?

May 15, 2017

With the ongoing discussions regarding the state budget deficit, I’d like to hear your feedback regarding revenues from tolls.

Take a look at the data and consider the points below and please answer the brief poll at the bottom.

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.
