New Online ‘Dashboard’ Created for Transportation Initiatives
The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) today announced the launch of a new interactive online tool, or “dashboard,” to track the progress of the state’s new Transportation Ramp-Up Program.
Signed into law in 2015 by Governor Dannel P. Malloy, the $2.8 billion Transportation Ramp-Up Program is the first step of Let’s Go CT!, a transformative strategy toward reinvesting in Connecticut’s infrastructure and economic future. Under the Ramp-Up Program, funding was authorized by the Connecticut General Assembly to get started on a mix of multi-corridor, multi-modal transportation initiatives. There are 34 major initiatives in total included in the Ramp-Up Program. All of these initiatives are being administered by CTDOT, and some contain multiple projects.
The new dashboard provides important information about each of the Ramp-Up initiatives, including financial statistics, project descriptions, timeframes and current status. Summary and drill-down information is also provided by way of state fiscal year, by mode of transportation and by transportation corridor (area of the state).
The CTDOT encourages the public to check back often, as the dashboard will be updated on a quarterly basis. Below is a link to the dashboard.
