I-90 Berkshires 2, December 2015MassDOT has scheduled four Public Meetings in January for the Western Massachusetts Turnpike State of Good Repair and Tolls Review.

State law provides that the Turnpike shall be operated and maintained free of tolls when all notes and bonds issued by the Department of Transportation have been paid in January 2017 and the Turnpike is deemed to be in good condition and repair to the satisfaction of the department.

The MassDOT Highway Division will host the public meetings to present and discuss its Triennial Review (State of Good Repair) report for the Turnpike and its impact on the status of tolls after January 2017 as follows:

Worcester- January 7, 6pm, Mass. College of Pharmacy and Health Science, 25 Foster Street, 9th floor
Springfield- January 19, 6pm, Springfield City Hall, 36 Court Street
Framingham- January 26, 6pm, Framingham Town Hall, 475 Union Ave. Blumer Room
Lenox- January 28, 6:30pm, Highway District 1 Headquarters, 270 Main St.

As federally mandated by Congress in 1982, MassDOT is required to submit a Triennial Review regarding the state of repair every three years. This report, conducted by an independent team, reviews the condition of highway assets, such as bridges, roadway assets, facilities, and pavement, along the Western Massachusetts section of Interstate 90. MassDOT will solicit input from the public on the Triennial Review, the state of repair of the Western Mass. section of the Turnpike and other capital needs for this section of highway.

Please view the Triennial Report available on the MassDOT Manuals and Publications web page.
