This plan is a continuation of the 1971 and 1972 plans in that the transportation planning effort of the Connecticut Department of Transportation, in conjunction with other State agencies and regional planning agencies, is an on-going continuous process. Transportation needs through 1990, discussed and displayed in the report, amount to approximately $6 billion. The report details the immediate and short range needs for all modes which, in the next three fiscal years, will require approximately $1.5 billion. The program shows, in the following seven years, needs requiring $1 billion. In the development of this plan, alternate forms of transportation were considered to fill the demands and needs for both people and goods throughout Connecticut. There is a need for further analysis and planning in the future, which will be conducted by this Department in cooperation with other agencies. In Chapter V the report discusses the deletion of three sections of expressway from the 1972 Master Transportation Plan, the need to purchase approximately 1900 new buses over the next seventeen years for local bus service, the proposed construction of exclusive busways, improved commuter rail service, the development of a State Airport System, plus a variety of other proposals.
