Secretary James Aloisi, Executive Office of Transportation

I am pleased to report the Executive Office of Transportation has achieved a major milestone by receiving federal approval of the Boston Region Regional Transportation Plan (RTP).  The RTP is a critical planning document that reflects transportation projects and priorities over the next 20 years. 

If the Commonwealth had failed to submit a new RTP before October 1st, the federal government could have shut down all transportation related funding.  With this approval, the Commonwealth can advance a number of projects that were stalled due to a lack of a new RTP.  Additionally, this RTP reflects for the first time the true financial resources available for transportation expansion.  It also includes an unprecedented "flexing" of highway funds for transit projects that attempts to reshape the balance of funding between the two modes. 

The Boston Region Metropolitan Planning Organization with guidance from EOT has completed a plan that is transparent and clear about our priorities.  This RTP will shape the future of transportation decision-making in the Boston region for the next several years.

I encourage you to view the RTP here.
