Worcester, Transportation Public Hearing, September 27, 2012MassDOT this week will continue a series of statewide public meetings in Worcester and Pittsfield.  The series of meetings, which began last week in Springfield, left, are engaging residents, community leaders and business owners to discuss the future of transportation in the Commonwealth.

The meetings are scheduled as follows:

Tuesday October 2, 2012 5:30-7:30 PM, Worcester City Hall, Levi Lincoln Room-3rd Floor, 455 Main Street Worcester

Thursday October 4, 2012 6-8 PM, Pittsfield Public Library (Berkshire Athenaeum) Auditorium, One Wendell Avenue, Pittsfield

Legislation passed in August requires the Department to host at least six public meetings in advance of developing a long-term financing plan for the state’s transportation system next year. To ensure that all regions of the Commonwealth are represented, MassDOT will hold 15 meetings.

Representatives from each division of MassDOT – RMV, Highway, Aeronautics and MBTA/Rail and Transit – will be available to answer questions and provide information.
