MassDOT Truck Refurbished April 2011 MassDOT Highway Division's Henry Brogna from Boston-area District 6 maintenance offers a story about making efficient use of the resources available and what he calls "the excellent work ethic" of a MassDOT maintenance crew in Westwood.

In addition to their regular maintenance duties, the 11-person crew has worked to repair and reuse existing vehicles.  The rack body truck at left was refurbished with a replacement body added.  The set up truck, below left, has been rebuilt from the frame up, with new wiring, metal fabrication, and paint.

Brogna says the crew has more repair work ahead.  Three 1995 L-8000 dump trucks were received last year, with the truck bodies beyond repair.  The crew is now in the process of mounting a spreader to a frame of one truck and mounting on the other trucks what Brogna says were "two very good used dump bodies at a very reasonable price."

All the work is done in-house while continuing regular maintenance work in the area. Congratulations to these MassDOT employees doing great work while saving the Commonwealth significant replacement costs.
