O’Donnell, a long time MassDOT employee, passed away two years ago today, September 14, 2010. O’Donnell’s career included years in Highway leadership and as a key contributor to the creation of the Patrick-Murray Administration’s historic Accelerated Bridge Program.
O’Donnell was also instrumental in Transportation Reform of 2009, breaking down barriers and integrating stand alone agencies to form the current MassDOT Highway Division. He also served as Commissioner of Public Works in the City of Quincy.
“Steve’s memory lives on in the Highway Division as an exemplary engineer and public servant,” said MassDOT Highway Administrator Frank DePaola.
The Memorial Highway runs along Washington Street in Weymouth (Route 53) from the Hingham town line to Broad Street, a length of approximately three miles.
O’Donnell was a graduate of Wentworth Institute of Technology and a proud veteran of the United States Marine Corps.
