I don't think the speed limit is set correctly. It says 50, but everyone thinks that if they go 10 mph over, they're not going to get a ticket. I drive a truck for frito lay, and since our business is off of 395, we have to get in the left lane 1 mile from the exit. I sometimes get those high beams flashed at me,from cars trying to get around.They should widen that section of highway first, and have 3 lanes to exit 76, 1.5 miles from the exit.

Once again CT's DOT insults us. The state of the art for highway construction is a mile per day. There are many examples, noteably Los Angeles rebuilt 90 miles of interstate highways in under ninety days after the last big quake. But here, the longer it takes, the longer political contributions come in from sub-contractors. The suffering of the travelers and taxpayers count for nothing.

How about you give me the $30 million and I teach people how to drive?

the DOT should make the widening of this section of 95 one of the so called "shovel ready projects..." push up the planning and design ASAP! its not pork or an earmark to improve a pre existing interstate highway......
