Almost everywhere you go in the state, you feel the impact of
traffic congestion – outdated infrastructure and outmoded public
transportation. But no place is it worse than in Fairfield County.

So today, we hit the road…braved the traffic on 95, and came to
Fairfield University for a special Where We Live devoted to
transportation.

We’ll talk about the impact clogged highways have on business in the
state…what the future of public transportation is in Connecticut…and
about what can be done to pay for roadway repairs while reducing
traffic (tolls anyone?)
