Connecticut is preparing to conduct a $1.4 million study on express-lane tolls in the state’s Interstate 95 corridor, potentially without the use of tollbooths, the New Haven Register newspaper reported.

One item being studied will be to make making all of I-95 — a primary north-south highway that runs through the state between New York and northern New England — an electronic toll road, versus adding express lanes that would allow motorists to bypass slower lanes, the paper said.

Also under consideration would be placing tolls on the state’s borders with neighboring New York and Rhode Island, though a Federal Highway Administration official who attended a meeting in the state last week said that was a separate issue, the Register reported.

Connecticut, which had multiple toll booths on I-95, dismantled them after a fatal accident in 1983 at a toll plaza in Stratford that killed seven people, the Associated Press reported.
