More revenue = more buses, more light rail, more sound walls and more roundabouts. Don’t expect bridges to be fixed.

I can't believe what a mess CT is. When I go east, I usually go to SE Mass or Central MA/Southern/VT with stops in CT. It's already near impossible to get through CT. The tolls will have even more people discovering the two-lane highways to avoid Rt 84 and 91, thus destroying those towns that are still livable. And won't it have a serious negative impact on those casinos? And chase even more people and businesses away?

The town I grew up in (Bethel: Stony Hill along Route 6) is already destroyed, and it's not atypical. I can't imagine anyone seriously thinks the tolls would be anything but a "quick fix" that make turning CT's fortunes around even more unlikely.
