HARTFORD, Conn. —
Republican Sen. John Kissel said in a letter Friday to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy that tolls near the state line would impede commerce, hurt Connecticut tourism and possibly set off a toll war in New England.
Rhode Island’s Department of Transportation filed an application in June asking the federal government for permission to open tollbooths on both sides of the highway in Hopkinton. No tolls are proposed at the Massachusetts border.
