Connecticut is undergoing a transportation transformation, and Governor Malloy is leading the charge with the help and support of Department of Transportation Commissioner Jim Redeker. “Governor Malloy is deeply committed to transportation as an investment in Connecticut’s infrastructure,” says Commissioner Redeker.
Stemming from the Governor’s experience as the Mayor of Stamford, Governor Malloy has a grasp of the importance of transportation infrastructure and Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) to the future of Connecticut according to the Commissioner according to the Commissioner. The Governor clearly sees the connection between transportation, the state’s economic well-being and the quality of life for the state’s residents. Commissioner Redeker explains: “Finding smart, practical ways to connect housing and employment centers to transportation is an important initiative of the Governor’s administration and serves a critical step to growing the state’s economy and making Connecticut a more vibrant place to work and live. The projects that we’re supporting will help these towns and surrounding regions take tangible steps in making their communities more walkable, more accessible, and more attractive to residents and employers alike.”
