Down in Connecticut, the state’s Transportation Committee will vote on a tolling bill Wednesday. 

Under the proposal for tolls, out of state drivers will be charged nearly 12 cents per mile on Connecticut highways during peak hours between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m., and 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.

The governor’s proposal would charge Connecticut residents about four cents per mile, with overhead gantries installed every six miles on Interstates 91, 95, 84, and Route 15. 

Tolls were removed from Connecticut’s highways in 1985.

The original plan by Democrats called for 82 tolls across the state. Governor Ned Lamont is proposing 53 tolls.

For western Massachusetts residents traveling into Connecticut, a one-way trip would cost $2.36 to get from Enfield to Hartford.
