MassDOT has released the first Annual Report for the Massachusetts Department of Transportation.
Governor Deval Patrick in June 2009 signed into law the landmark transportation reform legislation integrating transportation agencies and authorities into a new, streamlined organization. MassDOT was established on November 1, 2009.
The organization governed by a five-member Board of Directors includes four divisions: Highway, Rail & Transit, Aeronautics and the Registry of Motor Vehicles, along with the Office of Planning and Programming.
The first year of the new MassDOT has
brought reform, efficiency, and a renewed focus on customer service.
MassDOT's first Secretary and CEO Jeffrey Mullan, said, "I have traveled throughout Massachusetts, meeting with employees and citizens sharing the Governor’s vision for creating a single, unified transportation enterprise that puts the customer first and is focused on safety. We have made good progress, but much work remains to be done."
