State Aid to Repair Local 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. Repairing our roads is important for driver, cyclist and pedestrian safety.

In the State Senate I was able to secure funding for Connecticut municipalities under the Town Aid Road program. This money will provide relief to town and city budgets so their paving programs can be more extensive. Locally, that funding means an extra $1.2 million for New Haven, over $673,000 for Hamden and over $358,000 for North Haven.

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 pleased that towns and cities are getting more assistance to meet these critical needs.

New Haven's St. Patrick's Day Parade

Sen. Looney in ST. Pat's Parade
I had a wonderful time marching in the New Haven St. Patrick's Day Parade with Lieutenant Governor Nancy Wyman. Our parade, the 6th-oldest in the nation, features several thousand marchers and draws tens of thousands of spectators from across Connecticut.

Thanks to Chris Randall for snapping this photo. Visit www.ILoveNewHaven.org to check out more of his work celebrating the people, places and things of New Haven.
