And this is what reform looks like in action: crews and equipment from the former Turnpike and former MassHighway now working together repairing roadways.
In this case, 7 employees from MassDOT District One operations in Lenox and 8 former Turnpike employees came together in repairing roads off I-90. At left, the merged crews this week repaired Route 23 in Blandford. A similar repair project took place earlier this month in West Stockbridge on Route 102. The integrated MassDOT crews used former Turnpike trucks, rollers, and paving equipment to improve two roads plagued by spring potholes.
MassDOT District One Maintenance Operations Engineer Brian DiOrio calls this one of the largest road patching operations performed "in-house" by MassDOT employees in that area, thanks to the newly-merged department's employees and available equipment. Congratulations to Brian and the crews for the important work and for sending along a story of teamwork and an efficient approach to making roads safe.
