Explanation

The fiscal impact of imposing tolls on the state's interstate (I-95, I-84, and I-91) and non-interstate (Routes 2, 9, 11 and 15) highway systems cannot be determined at this time because specific information regarding where tolls would be levied has not been determined. The impact of imposing tolls will primarily depend on: (1) their location, (2) fee structure, (3) technology implemented, (4) associated administrative and capital costs, and (5) the federal laws governing the circumstances under which tolling is allowed.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to inflation.
