Connecticut’s Interstate of Confusion

 

WHEN the Connecticut portion of Interstate 95 opened to traffic on Jan. 2, 1958, state planners were so enthusiastic they dubbed their 111-mile section a “ribbon of hope.”

 

Have you stopped laughing yet? When was the last time you looked at I-95 as anything other than a congested horror show, entered with regret and left with relief? How many missed appointments and lost work hours can you attribute to that frustrating ribbon of concrete?

 

Sure, there have been efforts to ease the congestion, but few have succeeded or even gotten off the ground. What Connecticut needs to do is stop trying to “fix” I-95. Instead state officials need to focus on public transit, variable toll pricing and smart growth.
