CT2030 is the innovative, future state of Connecticut as a national leader in connectivity, commerce, and quality of life. CT2030 is the ten-year, responsibly-funded and financed vision of how Connecticut families, employees, and companies will thrive as the state’s transportation infrastructure sees unprecedented upgrades and economic growth. CT2030 is the future that Connecticut residents deserve.
Connecticut’s highways are the vital arteries that connect the state’s cities and towns, major employers, and destinations out of state. CT2030 addresses those needs in a calculated and forward-thinking way. Improvements will lead to increased productivity and savings for Connecticut employers, large and small. Workers can spend more time accomplishing goals and tasks, rather than being stuck in a transportation-related delay. Families will have more time to spend with each other and it won’t involve being stranded between exits in congestion. Learn More.
In CT2030, rail service is faster with new equipment like cars and locomotives, improved infrastructure, and better schedules to move commuters to their locations in the most efficient ways possible. New dual-power locomotives will travel over rail bridges that will be repaired or replaced with safer crossings which will lead to more reliable and faster connections. New, eco-friendly buses and modern rail cars connected with 5G service, will quickly and safely move passengers to their destinations, making it easier to get to work and to get home. New and expanded service in busy, priority regions, will improve job performance and productivity in CT2030. Learn More.
In CT2030, Connecticut has not only expanded its reach within the state’s borders through better highways, mass transit and ports. One of the most crucial elements of this vision is the expansion of air travel to and from Connecticut. The investment and expansion of a regional commercial airport in South-Central Connecticut will increase competition for routes with existing New York City area airports, and provide residents and companies even more options to travel in and out of the state. In CT2030, this airport will feature up to 30 regional flights per day. Learn More.
In CT2030, the potential of Connecticut’s ports is realized through a combination of targeted economic development and forward thinking investment into the expansion of those facilities. Connecticut has unique control over some critical ports in New London, Bridgeport, and New Haven. Stamford’s port is not state-controlled, but is an important part of the maritime economy. In some cases, dredging is needed to expand access to larger ships. In others, the state is embracing a new industry, which will support jobs and economic growth in the immediate area, and throughout Connecticut. Learn More.
