State Aid to Repair Local Roads

Roads
As the weather warms up, towns and cities will begin repaving roads and fixing potholes. While we all want smooth drives to work and school, the cost of paving programs can put a real dent in municipal budgets. This lack of funding can prevent towns and cities from filling that particularly pesky pothole or repaving your long overdue street.

In the State Senate I was able to secure $60 million for Connecticut municipalities under the Town Aid Road program. This money will provide relief to town and city budgets so their paving programs can go further. Locally that means an extra $1.3 million for Bridgeport and over $575,000 for Stratford.

While the bulk of this funding goes to road repaving, it can also be used for bridge maintenance, traffic signs and signals, and anything else that benefits public transportation.

Strengthening our transportation system is an important priority for me. I'm glad that towns and cities are getting more funding to meet these critical needs.
