Connecticut's severely congested transportation system is explored by William B. Kennedy in chapter two of Public Policy in Connecticut. The gridlock one experiences on Connecticut's highways is not only described in this chapter, but also explained. He explores alternative transportation strategies that would alleviate congestion, and examines the possible impact of an increase in telecommuting.
