The project is apparently still alive, but like everything, it'll be obsolete before it's implemented. Oh, and they dropped the idea of fixed mass tranist (specifically light rail) and roundabouts. Idiots.

Yup. That's my biggest gripe of all. The little stuff that would go a long way that just is not getting done. What's the hold up?

Like everything, funding. The ConnDOT is, of course, more intrested in putting more highways in. Route 11, what a joke. Rell is just as bad, completely pandering to people stuck in the 1950's. Any progressive idea is simply laughed at while the pavers continue to get more and more work.

To be fair, Route 85 from Waterford to Salem is almost as bad as Suicide 6. Route 11 should be completed in some form or another, my comment was something similar to the Merritt to counter the sheer blandness of the current 11. I of course would like to see a cross state networking of commuter rail, but I'm not sure anything would directly connect the Route 85 corridor as say a rail line bypassing Suicide 6 bypass would.

Another person crashed and died on Route 85 in to-be-bypassed stretch in an accident on Tuesday or Wednesday.

EDIT: However, Route 11 IMO should be the LAST major road building project in the state. Aside from need-be widenings and repavings and bridge replacements.
