MassHighway D-1 Employees mancari

MassHighway employs hundreds of dedicated public servants building and maintaining roads and bridges across the Commonwealth.  In the Berkshires, three employees represent a single family.  And it all began in 1952.    

For 57 years, the Mancari family has contributed to design and construction of roads, bridges and highways throughout the 56 city and towns of District One.  Francis (Duke), Joseph and Reed Mancari- grandfather, father, and son- have done it all, holding positions in Construction or Design including Junior Engineering Aid, General Construction Inspector, Engineering Aid II and Civil Engineer III. And all three are still on the job today.

Francis, or Duke as his friends and co-workers call him, has always had the drive to insure that a project is completed on time, on budget and on specifications.  His son Joseph inherited the same work ethic as the Resident Engineer for numerous projects.  Reed, the grandson, breaks the mold as the only one in the family who works in Design as an Engineering Aide II, helping plan the projects both his father and grandfather will ultimately help build.

 MassHighway is grateful for services of the Mancari family and can only hope that this family tradition will continue.
