The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) today launched the CTDOT Active Projects by Funding Type Map, which displays the locations of planned and active construction capital projects throughout Connecticut and identifies the source of project funding, including Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) funds.. IIJA includes funding by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), and Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The new online project map also indicates basic information about each project and is linked to other resources which provide greater detail.
“The new CTDOT Active Projects by Funding Type Map is innovative, informative, and user friendly,” Connecticut Department of Transportation Commissioner Joseph Giulietti said. “We are excited to share this helpful tool with Connecticut and the rest of the Nation, allowing us to issue consistent data while maintaining transparency on IIJA construction and projects.”
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is the most significant transportation investment in Connecticut’s history – totaling at least $5.38 billion. The IIJA investment will improve Connecticut’s aging transportation infrastructure, enhance public transit, increase safety technology for safer highways and roadways, and advance a cleaner transportation system. The ground-breaking CTDOT Active Projects by Funding Type Map lets users stay informed on how and when the IIJA funding is used.
The CTDOT Active Projects by Funding Type Map displays project data updated nightly and aggregates the total costs of all projects by funding type and construction phase. Additionally, more in-depth project information and schedule phases are available by interacting with the project map. Users of the active project map will find data at their fingertips and gain insight into how transportation projects and IIJA funding are connected.
The project map is located on the TED – CTDOT Open Data Hub – the CTDOT one-stop-shop for official transportation data and analysis and is open to the public for use without login.
