Stuck in traffic on 95? Packed Like a sardine into a train? Itâ€™s the life of the Connecticut Commuter.
Almost everywhere you go in the state, you feel the impact of traffic congestion â€“ outdated infrastructure and outmoded public transportation. But no place is it worse than in Fairfield County.
So today, we hit the roadâ€¦braved the traffic on 95, and came to Fairfield University for a special Where We Live devoted to transportation.
Weâ€™ll talk about the impact clogged highways have on business in the stateâ€¦what the future of public transportation is in Connecticutâ€¦and about what can be done to pay for roadway repairs while reducing traffic (tolls anyone?)
