The Massachusetts Turnpike Authority Board of Directors today meeting in Framingham approved unanimously a Fiscal Year 2010 Budget that rescinds proposed toll increases.   

The toll increases previously approved are rescinded following a commitment of $100 million to the Turnpike as part of the state FY10 General Appropriation Act. 

View the Board vote and FY10 budget summary here.

Transportation reform legislation signed by Governor Deval Patrick on June 26, 2009 creates the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, MassDOT, effective November 1, 2009.  

The Turnpike Authority will be integrated into MassDOT in a streamlined organization that includes the current Executive Office of Transportation, Massachusetts Highway Department, Registry of Motor Vehicles, Massachusetts Aeronautics Commission, Tobin Bridge, and many bridges and parkways currently under the responsibility of the Department of Conservation and Recreation.
