The safety of the public is our top priority and CTDOT is continuing its efforts to reduce the likelihood of wrong way driver crashes. When wrong way crashes happen, they are often fatal. Over the past several years CTDOT has been installing wrong way driving countermeasures. To augment these efforts CTDOT will launch a wrong way detection pilot program at 16 high-risk ramp locations. Installation will start in 2023. Click on the green "Pilot Program" button above to learn more.
Along with the pilot program, $20 million in additional state funding allow CTDOT to deploy additional wrong way countermeasures. CTDOT is also outfitting multiple ramp locations with wrong way detection technology. Here are the ramps with their installation status:
