HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -- Gov. Ned Lamont will be releasing his new transportation plan to fix roads, bridges and rails across the state.
The $21 billion transportation plan, which includes fewer tolls than his initial plan, and takes on 56 projects to upgrade state highways and improve rail services.
The plan was leaked to Channel 3 on Wednesday, but Lamont officially released it on Thursday.

The revised plan calls for 14 tolls that would generate about $300 million a year, and would include $4 to $5 billion in federal borrowing.
"The problem is we have some severe choke points that were built into the design of these highways many years ago, and if we fix choke points, we can dramatically improve commuting times," Lamont said on Thursday.
Tolls would go up along I-95 in Stamford, Norwalk, West Haven, East Lyme, and the Gold Star Bridge connecting New London and Groton.
Gantries would also be on I-84 in Newtown, Waterbury, West Hartford and the Charter Oak Bridge in Hartford, and on I-395 in Plainfield, Route 8 in Waterbury, Route 9 in Middletown, I-684 in Greenwich and the Merritt Parkway in Norwalk.
The cost of the tolls for cars would be between $0.50 and $1. In-state residents with an EZ-pass would get a 20 percent discount. Tractor trailers would pay seven times the car rate.
The plan is also expected to reduce congestion on I-95, mostly from Bridgeport south, and it would expand Tweed and Sikorsky airports and connect Waterbury to the Naugatuck Valley with train service to New York City.
Senate Republicans say the governor's plan is thorough, but tolls are problematic.
"You have to understand the plan, read the plan, [we have an] obligation to governor to review plan and take it in," said Republican State Senator Len Fasano.
The governor has met with Republican leaders and he has shared his plan and the numbers.
The GOP doesn't have a solution but is open to having an alternative.
Lamont is supported by business leaders who say Connecticut’s economic future is at stake.
"We think the life blood of the state is its workforce and we are hamstringing it right now. We are preventing it from moving around the state,” said Stamford business owner H. Darrell Harvey.
