Turkey and Mexico have better roads and paved sidewalks also. Not exactly first world countries.

I'd rather be aesthetic and environmentally friendly than have this.

It's not even going to help out much either. I hope something like this never passes.

As for the smoke stacks, I get both sides are guilty. The hope is that they go away, and they will as clean energy continues to dominate...

The high speed train networks, modern and well-maintained bridges, cross channel tunnel (Europe), modern airports, etc. are impressive. More than one traveler overseas has noted this and what appears to be a much higher priority on infrastructure and much higher standards for infrastructure construction. (Much of this, especially what I see in Europe, has been done well within the last 50 years...WWII ended 70+ years ago.)

Build this tunnel using private funds. If the toll is $25, people can make their own decisions. And in case of any emergencies there's another way out.

Lol 'Sagatose'

That's one step below Lactose.

Even right now that smokestack in Northport is an abomination... Hopefully it's replaced with something less ugly.

This would also have a TERRIBLE ecological impact on the Sound. Imagine all of the littering!

I say NO!
Funny you should mention littering. You do realize that CT wants to dump dredge into the Sound, don't you?

Perhaps CT should clean up it's own act and not use the Sound to dump waste.

Boom! Done!
We'd probably find Judge Roy Bean and Jimmy Hoffa, too!

Believe me, I think that's terrible and I'm ashamed our state is doing such a thing. I'm all with you guys on this one. But just because one side does something bad doesn't mean it's an excuse for the other side to.
