Interstate 95 ranks as among the nation’s longest and busiest highways in the U.S. with the worst congested area in Connecticut, according to a story in the Nov. 29th Wall St. Journal. The WSJ writes:
“The most congested stretch of I-95 is in Connecticut between Stamford and Bridgeport. Traffic moves at about 16 miles per hour on an average Friday at 5 pm. according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of 2015 date from the University of Maryland.
“Fixing the problem isn’t easy. Business groups oppose bringing in tolls and without another form of new revenue, it will be difficult for the state to make improvements.”
According to the WSJ, in order to fix the congestion on the Connecticut stretch would cost $2.5 billion.
