Today, Governor Malloy announced his plan to spend an additional $12 million on primary roads. 

You might have already noticed a bumpier ride as of late.  Potholes are a common site in Connecticut after a rough winter of constant snow and ice.

Already, Connecticut has set aside $57 million dollars in the budget. And, today the Governor announced he will ask the State Bond Commission to allocate $11.9 million.

Together, the money will fix 264 miles of roads.  That compares to the 200 - 250 miles normally repaired each year.  

There is an alternative proposal to pay for the repairs.  The Obama administration has been looking into using toll money as a source of revenue.  But, the law still remains that toll money only be used to add a lane and other similiar uses. 

The Bond Commission, chaired by Governor Malloy, is expected to approve the funding at its next meeting at on Friday, May 30th.
