CT2030 to Provide Crucial Updates to Connecticut Infrastructure to Spur Economic Growth
HARTFORD, Conn., Nov. 13, 2019 – CareCentrix, the leading provider of in home-based post-acute-care solutions, put out a statement today in support of CT2030, Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont’s comprehensive transportation infrastructure plan. CT2030 is a 10-year vision that invests $21 billion in the state’s roads, bridges and public transit system to reduce congestion through smart enhancement and preservation projects that focus on Connecticut’s highways, trains, buses, airports and ports.
“In Connecticut, companies are growing, but our roads are slowing,” said John Driscoll, CEO of CareCentrix. “Improving basic infrastructure is a necessary investment to support high growth companies like our own. Governor Lamont’s bill is a great start to help Connecticut stimulate growth in jobs and employment.”
The bill, which is crucial to growing Connecticut’s economy, calls for improved train service to New York City, with more, better and faster trains and building a rail connection to Bradley International Airport. The plan also proposes several actions for clearing the incredible congestion on key Connecticut thoroughfares, such as the removal of a traffic signal on Route 9 that is the source of backups during weekday commutes and on summer weekends.
