HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says his administration is pushing ahead with more studies of Route 11, the southeastern Connecticut highway that has remained unfinished for three decades.

Malloy’s acting transportation commissioner told reporters on Monday that the state needs to complete survey and engineering work and move forward on an environmental assessment that was halted during former Gov. M. Jodi Rell’s administration. The state also plans to come up with a better idea of how much the 8.5-mile span and intersection with I-95 will cost.

Malloy estimated that process will take about two-and-a-half more years.

Reaction to the news is mixed in the region. While some welcome movement on the long-stalled project, there’s skepticism that yet another study is needed and whether the highway will ever be finished.
