MassDOT Acting Highway Division Administrator Frank DePaola today joined Congressman Barney Frank and state and local officials at the Mansfield Visitors Center along I-95 to express support for efforts to keep the Center open.
Congressman Frank and local representatives including state Rep. Betty Poirier support a change in federal requirements or an exception to allow private industry to operate the Visitors Center.
The Visitors Center closed in 2009 due to state tourism budget reductions and reopened in May 2010 through a cooperative partnership involving the Plymouth County Development Council and MassDOT, which provided funds for utilities and continued general maintenance of the site.
