CIP Whittier Bridge 2019MassDOT is preparing the next five-year capital plan, a spending plan that will guide investments in our transportation system between 2020 and 2024. The Capital Investment Plan (CIP) determines how we prioritize and fund our investments, covering all transportation projects – everything from highway and municipal projects to regional airports, rail and transit, including the MBTA and Regional Transit Authorities as well as bicycle and pedestrian projects across the Commonwealth.

Join Us and Be Heard

We want to hear from you about your priorities for transportation projects both local and statewide. Tell us how we can improve our transportation systems, enhance our transportation capacity where needed, and build new projects to help communities prosper and get residents where they need to go. Representatives from MassDOT will inform attendees on how to get involved at the local and state level, provide a draft overview of the 2020 – 2024 CIP and record your input about your transportation needs and capital priorities. Please help spread the word about these Capital Investment Plan meetings to friends, family and business associates. Make your voice heard. Your participation is critical to meeting your transportation needs.
