HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — State officials say crews have resurfaced 330 miles of two-lane roads in Connecticut this year, the most the state has repaved in the last decade.
The Connecticut Post reports Gov. Dannel Malloy said on Monday that the state’s resurfacing total exceeded last year’s mileage by 25 miles and is nearly 90 more miles than 2013.
Officials say the additional mileage can be attributed to the state’s additional $5.7 million investment into the road program.
Connecticut spent $74.6 million resurfacing roads this year compared to last year’s cost of $68.9 million for 304 miles of two-lane roads.
Malloy says state officials are committed to maintaining and upgrading infrastructure to “continue driving growth, economic development and job creation” while improving quality of life.
