Who is designing our state’s transportation future? Urban planners? Academic visionaries? Highly trained engineering and planning professionals at CDOT? No, unfortunately the state is leaving those decisions to you and me via a website, TransformCT.org.
The idea is to give everyone in Connecticut a chance to voice their opinions about what roads and rails should be built, then debate and “vote” on others’ proposals. The top vote-getters will help determine what gets built. Some call it “crowd-sourcing” though I prefer to think of it as a popularity contest for amateurs.
