HARTFORD, Conn — Connecticut is expected to receive billions of dollars in additional federal transportation funding. 

There's money for rail and bus projects, bridge and road repairs, carbon emission reduction efforts, more electric vehicle charging stations, and other initiatives in the $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill that cleared the U.S. Senate on Tuesday and now awaits action in the House of Representatives.
