The Connecticut DOT (CTDOT) this week released its $9.7 billion five-year Capital Plan, covering fiscal years 2021-2025.

The plan includes capital investments in the state’s multi-modal transportation network, including state-of-good-repair as well as upgrades across all modes of transportation—highways and bridges, public transportation, bicycle and pedestrian amenities, as well as state facilities. 

"Ongoing maintenance and up-keep of our existing infrastructure, combined with strategic, thoughtful investment in projects that reduce congestion, improve mobility and efficiency, and minimize our environmental impacts are critical to keep Connecticut moving forward and competitive in the future," CTDOT Commissioner Joe Giulietti said in a statement. "Our five-year plan demonstrates our commitment to responsible stewardship of our existing transportation network, while targeting much-needed upgrades to our roads and bridges, our growing transit system, and healthier, eco-friendly, non-motorized options." 

CTDOT anticipates utilizing $2.1 billion in total capital program funding in federal fiscal year 2021, which began October 1, including approximately $800 million for bus and rail assets and $1.3 billion for highway and bridge infrastructure. 

Over the five-year plan, $5.9 billion (62%) will go toward highway and bridge projects, $3.5 billion (36%) toward public transportation, and $245 million (2%) for facilities.
