Commissioner Luisa Paiewonsky, MassHighway
Now that spring is here, we at MassHighway are once again ready to turn our attention to the start of a new construction season and our annual effort to beautify our state highways. This year's heavy snowfall has melted, leaving tons of trash and litter visible on our roads. We will be redoubling our efforts to prevent litter through public education, but we still need to get to work quickly on removing this unsightly trash from roadsides in all parts of the state.
I am pleased to announce MassHighway's 4th Annual Volunteer Litter Pick-up Days. Over the coming weeks, I will join my MassHighway colleagues in litter pick up across each of our five Districts. Volunteers from our Districts and Boston staff participate based on availability. This is a great opportunity to immediately improve the appearance of our state highways.
I wish to thank my co-workers as we continue our ongoing efforts to provide the citizens of Massachusetts with a safe, well-built and beautiful state highway system.
