The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) has posted a new video featuring an interview with MassDOT Secretary Stephanie Pollack about the ongoing project to modernize the I-90 corridor through the elimination of dozens of toll booths and installation of All Electronic Tolling.

Secretary Pollack explains the challenging project involved executing 23 separate contracts in 23 work zones and operating 24/7 in early stages. She says MassDOT has met the challenge with great planning and the results include travel time improvements and increased safety for commuters along with greenhouse gas reductions due to reduced congestion.

The video is one in a series by AASHTO intended to increase awareness about the excellent work being done on the front lines by state departments of transportation.

AASHTO is a nonprofit, nonpartisan association representing highway and transportation departments in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico that fosters the development, operation, and maintenance of an integrated national transportation system.
