    Two comments about tolls from a former resident of CT, and with a bit of years behind me —

    I remember when the Founder’s Bridge was completed, they tried to establish tolls on all river crossings near Hartford, including the Bulkeley bridge. However, the law in CT was that if there was a long-standing (I don’t remember how long) free passage on any public way, no impediment could be instituted blocking free passage. The bridge toll was challenged by a Manchester attorney, who later won in court. Passage had been free there for over a hundred years. Thus all tolls were removed on all Hartford bridges. Look it up. CT cannot block passage on public ways after a certain time.

    Secondly, since the interstate highways were built with federal funds, not CT funds, I do not believe CT has the right to institute tolls on federal projects. I-95 from New Haven to the NY line was the old CT Turnpike, a CT-built highway, and tolls can be re-established there, but not on the other interstates. Check it out carefully.
