Witness the spirit of collaboration in the transportation family and a nod to history, all in one stop at the Charlton Pike Service Plaza.  

RMV Registrar Rachel Kaprielian and current Turnpike Authority Executive Director Jeff Mullan stand with a plaque honoring the Turnpike's very first leader, William F. Callahan.  Callahan served as Pike Chairman from the day construction on the roadway began in 1955 until his death in 1964.

Brian Murphy and David Mohler from the Executive Office of Transportation joined the Registrar and Executive Director in the photo taken on June 26, the day Governor Patrick signed the bill that moves the RMV, Turnpike, and EOT along with MassHighway and the Aeronautics Commission into the new, streamlined Massachusetts Department of Transportation.
