Traffic congestion merits (on the Merritt and elsewhere) top priority. Consider a regional transportation plan to complement long overdue Bridgeport redevelopment. Metro Rail is inadequate in terms of providing Gold Coast regional service. An "atypical" monorail running down the center of 95 could provide a viable solution. However, it must a component of a large-scale regional land-use/transportation model. Bridgeport could become a vital urban hub that could eclipse Stamford and decrease dependancy on NY-bound Metro Rail commutes. I have mentioned this prospect to Scott Frantz and he agrees wholeheartedly.
