Abstract The report was conducted to benchmark Connecticut's performance in capital programming against other state DOTs, identify ways to improve the performance and efficiency of the capital programming process and crease a tool, a 'Transportation investment Dashboard,' to communicate the performance of Connecticut's capital program to the state's transportation leadership. Current data suggest that Connecticut's capital program may be more reliant on federal sources than the selected benchmark and best practice states reviewed in alternative sources of revenue will be needed to keep pace with the state's capital investment needs. ConnDOT is currently involved in many initiatives that are intended to improve the efficiency of the state's capital programming process and linkage to long-term transportation goals. These initiatives should be continued and progress should be tracked in a transportation investment dashboard using relevant financial data and performance measures. These performance measures should also be used to formalizing the linkage between long-term planning and capital programming, and to ensure that resources are adequate to meet future travel demand.
