MassDOT provided five crews equipped with chain saws, wood chippers and dump trucks to assist on state roadway cleanup in the area. Two MBTA tree crews were also dispatched at the request of Emergency Management officials. The goal is to open roadways for emergency vehicle and other access as quickly as possible.
According to MassDOT Emergency liaison Bob Ward today, "the crews deployed overnight met their objective and the communities couldn't have asked for more, and the community Emergency Management Directors couldn't convey enough praise for all of the crews efforts.
"Our assistance will enable them to hold special events they believed would not happen over the weekend. Outstanding!"
Thanks to all MassDOT and MBTA crews and all state and local emergency responders for prompt work in restoring road access and electricity for residents in Franklin County.
