The holiday promotion helps the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve's Toys for Tots campaign and encourages motorists to sign up for the e-Traveler service.
MassDOT and Hasbro donate board games to the campaign. In addition, a board game will be given away daily to an individual chosen at random from the list of those who have signed up for e-Traveler.
The e-Traveler Service provides weekly e-mail notification of road restrictions and construction advisories for the Massachusetts Turnpike, including the Ted Williams, O'Neill, Sumner and Callahan tunnels and I-93 in downtown Boston. Sign up here.
