Busway breaks ground today in Hartford

Groundbreaking on the $567 million busway between Hartford and New Britain takes place this afternoon.
And it's not busway anymore. Now they're called it CTfastrak.
You have to love that. It takes 15+ years just to break ground on the plan and somebody thinks, "hey, let's name it fast track."
While I'll continue to have a reporter's natural skepticism about this whole endeavor, I sure hope its advocates are right. It's be nice if all these millions prove a boon to both transportation and development.
