CCM demands release of $30 million in road aid squib

HARTFORD — The Connecticut Conference of Municipalities is demanding that Gov Dannel P. Malloy release $30 million in road aid owed to cities and towns across the state. "The ultimate cost of poor road conditions is significantly more over time than the cost to maintain those same roads in good condition," said Kevin Maloney, a CCM spokesman. "For example, after 25 years the cost per lane mile for reconstruction can be more than three times the cost of preservation treatments over the same time period, which can lead to a longer overall life span for the infrastructure," Maloney said. CCM said the $30 million was promised to towns and cities last year and represents a second payment by the state.
