The average driver in the Hartford area loses $2,120 annually as a result of driving on roads that are deteriorated, congested, and that lack some desirable safety features, according to a new report from TRIP, a national transportation research nonprofit based in Washington, DC.
Local speakers will join TRIP at a virtual news conference on Tuesday to highlight the report’s findings. The report, “Transportation’s Vital Role in Connecticut’s Recovery,” examines road and bridge conditions, congestion, economic development, highway safety, and transportation funding in the Bridgeport-Stamford, Hartford and New Haven urban areas and statewide.
A link to a video containing TRIP spokesperson comments on the report’s findings for the Hartford area will also be posted on the TRIP website at 10:00 a.m. EDT on March 16.
